The evacuation of two neighborhoods is currently underway in Turkey's southeastern province of Şanlıurfa, after a mortar shell hit the area injuring two people, the Şanlıurf governorate announced.
The decision came after a mortar shell fell on a house in the Suruç district of the province of Sanliurfa on Sunday, injuring at least two people, according to Şanlıurfa Governor İzzettin Küçük.
"We decided to transfer the residents of Büyük Kendirci and Küçük Kendirci in a more secure place," Küçük told Anadolu Agency.
The two people injured are currently being treated at Suruç State Hospital.
The incident comes as clashes between Kurdish groups and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants intensified on Sunday around the Kurdish-populated city of Kobani (Ayn al-Arab) in Syria, just a few kilometers from the Turkish border.
Turkish armed forces have heightened security on the border, according to Anadolu Agency reporters.
ISIS militants, who otherwise control large parts of territory in Syria and Iraq, have recently been attacking the border town of Kobani from all directions.
Around 160,000 Kurdish refugees took shelter in Turkey, according to Ankara, since the country opened its border on September 19.
