Five people were wounded on Sunday when a mortar crashed into a house on Turkish territory just a few kilometres from a border area inside Syria where Kurdish fighters are battling ISIS terrorists, medical sources said. The intensity of the fresh fighting in Syria for the town of Kobane prompted the Turkish security forces to order an evacuation of the border zone as a security precaution. The mortar -- whose origin was not immediately clear -- smashed into the house two kilometres (1.2 miles) from the Syria border outside the town of Suruc, medical sources told AFP. They said none of the injuries was believed to be life-threatening. "It was like a nightmare. There are clashes nearby and nobody is doing anything," one of those wounded, Berhan Polat, told AFP from hospital in Suruc. He said there were around 10 to 15 people in the house at the time. But as a security precaution amid the intensifying fighting, Turkish forces then ordered the evacuation of residents from two small border villages. They also ordered the evacuation of the border zone around the crossing of Mursitpinar that has served as the main vantage point for watching the fighting for reporters and Kurds over the last two weeks. The security forces used tear gas to disperse all people from the border zone and one media car was damaged by a tear gas canister fired at point blank range, witnesses said. Mortars have on occasion hit Turkish territory over the last days amid the fighting for the Syrian town of Kobane, leaving several people wounded. Four more mortars fell on Turkish soil in the afternoon Sunday, security sources said, but there were no reports of more casualties. Turkish forces are deployed on the border but not taking part in the fighting.
