Stopped after possibly hitting several military targets

Turkish artillery continued firing overnight on Syrian targets in retaliation for shelling from Syria that struck a border village, killing five civilians, including three children.

A Turkish official told CBS News correspondent Holly Williams that the artillery fire had halted Thursday morning after "possibly several" targets in the same area were hit. He said targets, all Syrian military installations, were in the area from which the shell was fired from Syria on Wednesday.
