Turkish bombardment kills 20 civilians in Syria: monitor

Beirut, Aug 28 (AFP) Turkish shelling and air strikes killed at least 20 civilians in Syria today, the fifth day of an incursion against Islamic State group jihadists and Kurdish militia, a monitor said.

"At least 20 civilians were killed and 50 others wounded by Turkish artillery fire and air strikes on Sunday morning at Jeb el-Kussa," a village south of Jarabulus, said Rami Abdel Rahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

It comes after Turkey suffered its first fatality on Saturday, blaming Kurdish militia in a fight for control of
the border region.
