Syria helicopters bomb rebel area near Turkey border - activists
AMMAN Nov 11 (Reuters) - Syrian helicopters and artillery bombarded the Ras al-Ain area near the border with Turkey days after Free Syrian Army rebels captured it during an advance into the northeast, opposition campaigners said.
Helicopters fired rockets at a grain storage area near the village of Tal Halaf and shells hit the border crossing in the northeastern oil-producing province of Hasaka, home to a large proportion of Syria's Kurdish minority, 600 km (375 miles) from Damascus, the activists told Reuters.
