Turkish shelling kills 60 civilians in Syria's al-Bab

At least 60 civilians have been killed and tens of others wounded over the past six days by Turkish shelling on the Syrian city of al-Bab, as part of the operation against the Islamic State (IS) group, which is in control of that key city in northern Syria, a monitor group reported on Monday.


As many as 13 children were among those killed in the Turkish shelling on al-Bab in the northern countryside of the northern province of Aleppo, near the Turkish borders, said the [so-called] "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights".

The UK-based monitor said intense battles are still raging between the Turkish forces and allied Syrian rebels on one side with the IS militants in the city, as the Turkish forces have captured areas in the western part of the city.

The Observatory said the IS is still in control over the major areas in al-Bab despite the fact that the Turkish forces and allied rebels have reached the outskirts of the city three months ago.
