ANKARA, Turkey — An aide to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey has no intention of declaring war on Syria.

The aide says Thursday that Turkey's shelling of Syria following a mortar attack that killed five civilians in Turkey and the proposed bill to authorize military actions against its neighbor should be seen as a "warning to Syria."

Turkey's parliament on Thursday was debating a bill to authorize the military to launch cross border operations in Syria, while Turkey resumed artillery shelling of Syrian targets near the border.
