Turkish drone strike kills 4 in northeast Syria: monitor

A Turkish drone strike has killed at least four people in a northeast Syrian city held by Kurdish forces, the latest in a flurry of attacks, a war monitor says.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the attack struck near a hospital in Qamishli, the de facto capital of a semi-autonomous Kurdish administration that runs large parts of the country’s northeast.

The four victims, all affiliated with the administration, were killed while they dug trenches near Turkey’s border in anticipation of a new offensive that Ankara has threatened to launch since May, the monitor says.
