Video: Is a Turkey-Syria conflict inevitable?

Today’s Zaman reports: Another mortar shell from Syria struck Turkish territory on Sunday, prompting a fifth straight day of retaliatory artillery fire by the Turkish military.

An Associated Press video journalist said Turkish artillery fired toward Syria minutes after a Syrian shell landed on Turkish territory.

The Syrian shell landed some 200 meters (200 yards) inside Turkey, near the border town of Akçakale. A short time later, at least six mortars could be heard fired from Turkey. It was the fifth day in a row that Turkey returned fire.
