A mortar shell from Syria Monday exploded in Turkey's Ceylanpinar of the southeastern province of Sanliurfa, killing at least one person, local Dogan News Agency reported.

The stray shell reportedly came from the clashes between the al- Nusra Front and the Democratic Union Party on the Syrian side of the border.

Recently, clashes between different groups of the Syrian rebels intensified near the Turkish-Syrian border, bringing Turkey to high alert on any spillover into its border cities.

Last month, Turkish troops exchanged fires with militants linked to al-Qaida near the Syrian border, after a mortar shell fired from the Syrian side landed near a Turkish border outpost.
