Following this morning’s reported  shelling of a Turkish town (from Syrian lands):
The Turkish foreign ministry has held emergency talks and, according to Zaman , Turkey has now begun firing ‘warning’ shots into Syria and ‘the bombardment continues to be heavy’.
And it would appear things are escalating:
On the earlier Syrian shelling of Turkey…
AKCAKALE, Turkey, Oct 3 (Reuters) – A mortar bomb fired from Syria landed in a residential district of the southeastern Turkish town of Akcakale on Wednesday, killing a woman and four children from the same family and wounding at least eight other people.
A cloud of dust and smoke rose up over low-rise buildings as residents ran to help the wounded. Others, infuriated by the increasing spillover of violence from Syria’s civil war, took to the streets shouting protests against the local authorities.
Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu phoned U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to brief him about the incident and also spoke with senior military officials and Syria crisis mediator Lakhdar Brahimi, his ministry said in a statement.
Davutoglu signalled over the weekend that Turkey would take action if there was a repeat of a mortar strike which damaged homes and workplaces in Akcakale last Friday.
