Several hundred people, including civilians, have been killed during Turkey's military operation in Syria's Afrin, Interfax news agency cited Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying on Wednesday.

Turkish media reports say two more rockets fired from Syria have struck a Turkish border town, wounding one person.

State-run Anadolu Agency says the rockets, fired from the Syrian Kurdish-held enclave of Afrin, hit a road and an empty house in the town of Reyhanli on Wednesday. One person was hurt in the attack, the private Dogan news agency reported.

Earlier, a teenage girl was killed when a rocket hit her home in Reyhanli, bringing to four the death toll in multiple rockets attacks on Reyhanli and the border town of Kilis since Turkey launched its cross-border operation to drive out a Syrian Kurdish militia from Afrin.
