Turkish soldiers exchanged fire with four motorcycle smugglers on the Syrian border on Wednesday, according to a statement posted on Turkish Armed Froces (TSK) website.

Turkish soldiers in the southern city of Sanliurfa detected four smugglers approaching the border area late Wednesday, and warned them in Arabic and Turkish not to come closer.

Smugglers reportedly responded to the warning by opening fire on the Turkish soldiers, who did likewise in line with the rules of engagement.

TSK stated that the smugglers then gave up on their attempt to infiltrate into Turkey and returned to Syria.
