‘At least two dozen civilians, including children, have been killed in airstrikes and shelling by the Turkish military in Syria’s northern border city of al-Bab over the past 24 hours, a monitoring group says.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Thursday that 11 children had been among those killed in the latest Turkish bombardment of the city, which lies 40 kilometers northeast of Aleppo.

Turkey’s army, however, claimed that it had only killed 15 “terrorists” in the operation, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported.’
