Sharjah 24 – AFP: Shelling on the Turkish-held city of Afrin in northern Syria killed six civilians on Thursday, the latest in a spate of attacks, a war monitor said.
It was not immediately clear who fired the artillery shells but the attack came from a region where Kurdish fighters and Syrian regime forces are present, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"Six people, including two children, where killed," said the Britain-based monitor which relies on sources inside Syria for its reports.

Nearly 30 others were wounded, it added.
