Syrian fighter jet bombs Ras al-Ain, near Turkish border
CEYLANPINAR, Turkey Nov 12 (Reuters) - A Syrian fighter jet bombed the town of Ras al-Ain on Monday metres from the Turkish frontier, as forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad tried to wrest control of the area back from rebels, a Reuters witness said.
The bombing sent up huge plumes of black smoke and scores of Syrians ran from the area, scrambling to cross the border fence into Turkey.
