Five dead and five wounded by a rocket attack in the Syrian city of Azaz

Ankara claims its fighters destroyed 89 targets in Syria and Iraq on Sunday and that 184 fighters were killed in operations against the YPG and PKK on Sunday and Monday.

Five civilians, including a child, were killed and as many wounded in a rocket attack on the rebel-held town of Azaz in northwestern Syria, a local hospital nurse and an activist said.

Reuters was unable to ascertain where the attack came from, which took place in an area near the Turkish border controlled by Turkish-backed Islamist rebels.

They had been preceded, in the previous days, by attacks by Turkish drones and F-16 fighters against the YPG militia of the Syrian Kurds.
