17 dead in Turkish attack on Afrin region in Syria

Turkish warplanes attacked pro-Syrian government forces overnight Thursday, killing at least 17 people in a village in the north of the Afrin region in northwestern Syria, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday, according to Reuters.

The Turkish military declined to comment on the Observatory report, but the Turkish Anadolu news agency reported on Friday that Turkish attack helicopters had killed nine YPG fighters in the west of Afrin.
