Rockets from Syria have landed inside Turkey's southeastern border town of Kilis, injuring several people, security sources and privately owned Dogan News agency said on Monday.

It was not immediately clear whether the rockets came from Islamic State-controlled Syria. Kilis, which is home to large numbers of Syrian refugees, has suffered repeatedly from cross-border shelling.
