5 killed as Turkey conducts air strikes in Syria

Damascus, Oct 18 (IANS) Five people were killed on Friday by Turkish air strikes in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah despite a cease-fire agreement with Kurdish forces, state news agency SANA reported.

Some 20 others were wounded in the air strikes that targeted the village of Um al-Kheir on the outskirts of the city of Ras al-Ayn in the countryside of Hasakah province near Turkey, Xinhua reported.

The air strikes came after a cease-fire agreement was announced by the US on Thursday.

US Vice President Mike Pence said that Turkey has agreed to a cease-fire in Syria, under which the Kurdish forces of the Syrian Democratic Forces must dismantle their defensive fortifications and pull troops from the border area.
