A Syrian jet bombed the rebel-held town of Ras al-Ayn along the Turkish border on Tuesday. It was the second day of the airstrikes, which have killed an estimated 30 people. Turkish ambulances rushed to the border to carry wounded Syrians to hospitals on the Turkish side. Thousands of refugees have poured into Ceylanpinar, the Turkish town just over the border from Ras al-Ayn, since fighting began in the area three days ago.
