KILIS, Turkey (AA) – A third victim of an April 24 rocket attack on the Turkish border city of Kilis died Monday, a hospital source said.

Ismail Ufak, 27, died in Kilis State Hospital, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to media.

The attack – the latest in a series of attacks launched from Daesh-controlled territory in Syria – hit a residential neighborhood of Kilis, which lies 6 kilometers (4 miles) from the Syrian border.

A Turkish woman and a Syrian man caught in the attack also died.

In Kilis province, 19 people have been killed and 60 wounded in cross-border rocket strikes since mid-January.
