Raʾs al-ʿAyn: Dozens dead after Syrian Air Force attacks

KURDWATCH, November 24, 2012—On November 12, 13, and 14, 2012, Syrian Air Force planes, supported by ground-to-ground missiles, attacked Free Syrian Army (FSA) positions in Raʾs al‑ʿAyn (Serê Kaniyê). In the process residential districts in which FSA fighters were entrenched were also bombed. As many residents had already fled the city shortly after the FSA's invasion on November 8, 2012 [further information], the number of civilian deaths—at least twelve—remained relatively low. Turkish ambulances brought the injured to the nearby Turkish city of Ceylanpınar. There are no reliable figures on the number of dead among the ranks of the FSA.
