Turkey continued to shell military targets in Syria for the second consecutive day on Thursday. The attack was in retaliation after Syrian forces pounded a Turkish town, killing five civilians on Wednesday. NATO has called for an emergency meeting and is urging Syria to immediately stop violence against Turkey. The attacks come as Ankara lawmakers debate legislation allowing cross-border raids as violence escalates between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and rebel forces who want to oust him.
