Pro-regime fighters backing Kurdish militia in north-western Syria killed in latest attacks by Turkish aircraft

Turkish airstrikes killed at least 36 pro-regime fighters backing Kurdish militia in Syria’s north-west Kurdish enclave of Afrin on Saturday, a monitoring group said. The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces alliance said the Turkish raids targeted pro-regime positions, but gave no death toll.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strikes on Kafr Janna were the third such raid on loyalist fighters in the enclave bordering Turkey in less than 48 hours. They came after Turkish raids on other parts of the enclave killed 14 pro-regime fighters on Thursday and four more on Friday, the monitor said.
