AMMAN Nov 11 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.
