The official said four wounded Syrians were brought to Turkey for treatment today and one of them died. An estimated 20 people died during yesterday’s air-raid in Ras al-Ayn and a further 10 died of wounds in Turkey, the official said.
Syrian rebels wrested control of Ras Al Ayn from the forces of Mr Bashar Assad’s regime last week. The town is in the predominantly Kurdish oil-producing northeastern province of Al Hasaka.
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, speaking to a group of Turkish journalists in Rome yesterday, said Turkey had formally protested the bombings close to its border to Damascus, saying the attacks were endangering Turkey’s security. He said Turkey had also reported the incident to NATO allies and to the United Nations Security Council.
The Syrian jet had not infringed Turkey’s border, he said, adding that Turkey would have responded if it had. He did not elaborate.
The fighting in Ras Al Ayn touched off a massive flow of refugees three days ago, and more refugees fled into Ceylanpinar yesterday and today.
The violence in Syria has killed more than 36,000 people since an uprising against President Bashar Assad’s regime began in March last year. Hundreds of thousands have fled into neighbouring Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq. AP
Everybody is involved in this nonsense, carry on to play games, God will first punish Syria and set an example to the entire world with trying to fool around with God’s plans. Not only that, everybody will have no money, I can easily outlast everybody, see if you get hungry first and come to beg me or I will give up anything to play to your wishes. – Contributed by Oogle.
