Turkey carried out an airstrike in northern Syria on Tuesday near its border killing at least 11 people, including Syrian government soldiers, PTI reported citing information from an opposition war monitor and a Kurdish media outlet.

The attack happened just west of the northern town of Kobani and comes amid tensions in northern Syria between US-backed Kurdish fighters and Turkey-backed opposition gunmen.

There was no immediate official comment from Syria or Turkey, the news agency report said.
