Syrians Bomb Near Turkish Border

Syrian bombs fell on a town held by opposition forces just yards from the Turkish border Monday. Helicopters and warplanes struck the town of Ras Al-Ain, which last week fell under rebel control. The warplane that dropped explosives within a stone’s throw of a frontier fence veered close to the limits of Syrian airspace and may have crossed over into Turkey, according to a Reuters reporter on the ground. Civilians from the Syrian town fled into Turkey as the bombs fell.
