Fourteen killed after Turkish strike in Ras al Ain
[AlAhram] The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a Ottoman Turkish air strike on a convoy in the Syrian town of Ras al Ain killed 14 people including five civilians and maimed 10 on Sunday.

Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman said the strike had hit a gathering of civilians who had come to Ras al Ain from the city of Qamishli to show support as the town is targeted by Ottoman Turkish forces attacking Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria.

Several foreign journalists were with the convoy when it was struck, according to a news hound from French broadcaster La Belle France 2.

An SDF statement said Ottoman Turkish "invading forces" had targeted a civilian convoy with international media journalists on board that was heading to Ras al Ain accompanied by its fighters to "express their rejection of the Ottoman Turkish invasion".

It said "tens of civilians were dead and injured."
