UN Condemns Syrian Attack

A mortar attack from Syrian troops that left five dead in a Turkish border town was strongly condemned by the United Nations Security Council Thursday. A U.N. statement demanded “such violations of international law stop immediately and are not repeated.” The Syrian attack on the Turkish border town occurred Wednesday, with Turkey retaliating with targeted strikes in Syria later that day and Thursday. Turkey's prime minister has said his country has no intention of starting a war with Syria.
