Syria: Turkish Fighter Jets Bomb Industrial Zone in Al-Bab
The sources said that the Turkish army and air force have been pounding residential areas and people’s properties in the ISIL-held town of al-Bab.
They added that the warplanes bombed three large industrial plants in al-Bab.
One of the bombed factories had 100 workers and was producing flour and cookies, while the other two were packaging plants with over 250 workers.
The sources confirmed that five workers were killed and the factories sustained major damage in the attacks.
A monitor said on Friday that ten civilians, including a child, were killed in Turkish airstrikes and shelling in and around a Syrian town held by the ISIL terrorists.
The bombardment hit the Northern town of al-Bab and the nearby area of Tadif, both held by ISIL, on Thursday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, the Lebanese Naharnet news agency reported.
Turkish forces regularly carry out air strikes in support of a ground operation it launched in Syria last August targeting both ISIL and Kurdish fighters.
ISIL is not included in a fragile nationwide ceasefire in force since December 30 that led to peace negotiations jointly organized by Turkey, Russia and Iran in Kazakhstan this week.
Ankara has backed rebel groups fighting against President Bashar al-Assad since the conflict began with anti-government protests in March 2011.
Moscow and Tehran have supported the government.
