Bombings along Syria-Turkey border

A Syrian fighter jet bombed the town of Ras al-Ain on Monday (November 12) metres from the Turkish frontier, as forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad tried to wrest control of the area back from rebels, a Reuters witness said. The bombing sent up huge plumes of black smoke and scores of Syrians ran from the area, scrambling to cross the border fence into Turkey. The Arab and Kurdish town of Ras al-Ain fell to the Free Syrian Army on Thursday (November 8) in fighting that sent 9,000 fleeing in a 24-hour period, one of a largest refugee influxes into Turkey of the 19-month civil war. More than 120,000 registered Syrian refugees are now sheltering in Turkish camps and tens of thousands of unregistered Syrians are living in Turkish border towns and villages.
