CNN’s Ivan Watson conflict between Syria and Turkey

 Tensions are rising this morning between Syria and Turkey after five civilians in a Turkish border town were killed by artillery fire. Three of the victims were children. Turkish troops are now firing back and adding fuel to the fire in the ongoing fight in Syria. CNN’s Ivan Watson delivers the latest on the conflict between the two countries live from Istanbul today on “Early Start”.

Turkey is "still reeling from the death of its civilians" in the Turkish border town, Watson says. "This morning, there was a funeral and scenes of grief and people carried the civilians' coffins through the streets." Residents told Watson they were up all night because of  Turkish artillery "firing out from the immediate surrounding across the border into Syria." He says Turkish government officials told CNN that "Turkish artillery barrages continued throughout the night and the predawn as well." Watson says Turkish Parliament officials are now debating whether "to authorize the use of force presumably in Syria."
