An anti-aircraft shell fired from Syria hit a health center across the border in the Reyhanli district of Turkey’s Hatay province on Tuesday but there were no immediate reports of injuries, CNN Turk television said.
Turkey has bolstered its military presence along its 900-km (560-mile) border with Syria and has been responding in kind to gunfire and mortar shells hitting its territory from fighting between Syrian rebels and government forces.
The Reyhanli district governor’s office said it had no immediate information on the incident.
Tension between the two neighbors, once close allies, is at its highest since Ankara turned against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad last year over his violent crackdown on anti-government protests.
