Another Syrian shell fired into Turkish territory

(Vatican Radio) Another mortar shell from Syria struck Turkish territory on Saturday, prompting a fourth straight day of retaliatory artillery fire. The latest shelling comes a day after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on Syria not to test Turkey's ``limits and determination''.

No one was hurt by the mortar, but state media said Turkish artillery immediately responded with ``counter-fire,''.


As the fighting in Syria goes on refugees continue to flee in to neighbouring countries including Turkey.

The Executive Director of the World Food Programme, Ertharin Cousin says they are providing food to over a million people in the region.

“We’re very much involved in what is happen in Syria and as the situation continues to evolve our work also continues to evolve. We have for the first time dispatched food just this week to 1.5 million people inside Syria the majority of whom are internally displaced persons.”

She also says WFP is aiding refugees in the neighbouring countries of Turkey, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon. Listen RealAudioMP3
