>> syria this morning as turkey retaliates against the crisis-stricken neighbor for a second day. eamon, good morning.
>> reporter: good morning, natalie. that incident yesterday that triggered this assault was from the syrian military, a mortar round landed in southeastern turkey killing five people including a mother and her three children and an additional woman. now the turkish military has responded for a second straight day shelling military positions six miles inside syria . we understand according to syrian human rights organization that syrian soldiers have been killed. meanwhile, here in turkey, the turkish parliament is holding an emergency session, they're debating the possibility of authorizing the prime minister to have the power to deploy forces, including ground troops inside syria . but certainly that opens a can of worms that people in the region think would be extremely problematic and really put this region in further turmoil than it's seen over the past 18 months.
>> thank you, eamon.
