In Syria, a car bomb near a hospital in a town held by Turkey-backed rebels killed 11 civilians on Sunday. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that the blast struck in Al-Rai near the Turkish border.
A member of the rebel security forces, Osama Abu al-Kheir, told AFP that a refrigerator truck blew up outside a healthcare center. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing near the town's entrance, the second such deadly blast in the wider rebel-held area since June.
Ankara keeps Turkish troops and intelligence forces in the area, and it backs Syrian rebels serving as police officers. (AIR NEWS)
