ANKARA, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- Turkey struck Syrian forces close to its border on Monday morning after two anti-aircraft shells fired from Syrian territory hit a village in Turkish southern Hatay province, local newspaper Today's Zaman reported.

Two anti-aircraft shells fired from Syrian territory hit 300 meters north of the village of Besaslan in Reyhanli town in Hatay, according to the report.

The shells fell in a nonresidential area of the Turkish village and the Turkish army responded immediately with artillery fire, said the report.

Relations between Turkey and Syria have been strained after a deadly shelling by Syria hit a Turkish border town earlier this month.

The Turkish Armed Forces' Chief of General Staff Necdet Ozel told reporters during a recent visit to the border town of Akcakale that Turkey warned of stronger retaliation if Syria continued shelling on the Turkish soil.
