More from Human Events:

Turkey referred this incident to NATO and the United Nations.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said “we are outraged that the Syrians have been shooting across the border. We are very regretful about the loss of life that has occurred on the Turkish side.”

NATO condemned the incident, and said it has “no intention of intervening in Syria, but stands ready to defend Turkey if necessary.”

It looks like it might be necessary, because Reuters just reported that “Turkey says it has struck targets in Syria in response to a mortar strike across the border,” according to the Turkish Prime Minister’s office.  NATO is said to be following the situation “closely and with great concern.”
