A mortar fire reportedly shot from Syria's Tal Abyad, hit a residential building in the south-eastern city of Akcakale on Sunday, leaving a hole in the facade.
Footage shows people rushing into the building and carrying a man outside. An ambulance and military vehicle were deployed on-site.
According to the media, the attack did not cause any human casualties.
On Saturday, Turkey-backed forces were seen active in Tal Abyad, in north-eastern Syria, as the troops are fighting against Kurdish-led forces.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the beginning of a military operation, dubbed 'Operation Peace Spring', on October 9 to create a 'safe zone' cleared of US-backed Kurdish groups.
