HeadlineJun 14, 2021

In Syria, at least 13 people were killed and nearly two dozen others wounded Saturday as artillery shells hit a residential area and a hospital in the rebel-held city of Afrin. Among the dead were three hospital staff, a doctor, two women and two children. It’s not clear who launched the attack from Syria’s northern Aleppo province, which came from an area where both Syrian government troops and Kurdish-led fighters are active.
