A missile fired by ISIS forces in Syria hit a crowded area of the town of Kilis in southern Turkey on Thursday afternoon. Initial reports said that six people, all Syrian refugees, including five children, were injured. The attack marked the first such attack by ISIS on the border town since the start of Turkey's invasion of northern Syria, which Ankara calls “Operation Euphrates Shield”.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
