Strike Kills 19 Civilians in IS-Held Syrian Village

Airstrikes on a village with a mainly Kurdish population near Syria’s northern border with Turkey and controlled by the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group killed and injured dozens on Wednesday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Three children were among at least 19 civilians killed in an airstrike, the monitor said.
Both the Turkish military and the US-led anti-IS coalition have been launching airstrikes in that region, but it was not clear which nation’s aircraft carried out the strikes, the war monitor said, Reuters reported.
Turkish military intervention to clear the terrorists from the Syrian side of the Turkish border aims to eventually oust the extremists from the town of al Bab, 16 km southeast of the village.
Turkey, which is fighting a Kurdish insurgency at home, is working with western-backed militants in the push, hoping also to stem the expansion of the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia into areas of Syria formerly controlled by IS along the border.
The Syrian military, supported by Russian air power, is also waging a separate campaign against IS across Syria.
