CCTV footage circulated on Wednesday (October 17) showed the moment a mortar - believed to have been fired from Syria - hit a residential building on the Turkish side causing casualties and damage.
The attack took place on Friday (October 11). That same day eight people were killed and 35 wounded on the same day when the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia launched several mortar and rocket attacks in the border area of Nusaybin, the governor's office in the southeastern province of Mardin said at the time.
It is not clear at which of the several locations of attacks this CCTV footage was filmed.
