Smoke rises in Syria after Turkey fires a mortar bomb into the countryside near the border.
It is the sixth consecutive day of Turkish retaliation against bombardment from the Syrian side of the border.
This comes as the Turkish President says that the "worst-case scenarios" are taking place in Syria and he urged the international community to act.
He also says Turkey will continue to do everything necessary to protect its borders.
