5 Civilians Killed, Several Hurt In Rocket Attack On Syria’s Azaz

Damascus: As many as five civilians were killed after a rocket attack on the rebel-held northwestern Syrian city of Azaz on Tuesday.

The dead included a child and four men.

The incident took place in an area near the Turkish border that is under the control of Turkey-backed Islamist rebels.

The incident follows attacks by Turkish drones and warplanes on the Kurdish YPG militia in Syria in the last few days as Turkey and the YPG escalated tit-for-tat strikes that have killed civilians on both sides of the border.

Turkey said its warplanes destroyed 89 targets in Syria and Iraq on Sunday, with 184 militants killed in operations targeting the YPG and PKK on Sunday and Monday.
