Turkish air strikes kill 15 more civilians in Syria: Observatory

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A group monitoring the Syrian war said Turkish air strikes had killed at least 15 civilians in northern Syria, bringing to 35 the number of people it says have been killed in Turkish air strikes in the area on Sunday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 20 more people were wounded in the air raid targeting a farm near the village of al-Amarna, which was captured by Turkish-backed Syrian rebels from Kurdish-allied militia on Sunday.

In a separate attack, the Observatory had said at least 20 people were killed and 50 more wounded in Turkish air strikes on the village of Jub al-Kousa, also within an area held by the Kurdish-allied militia.
