The Turkish security forces have shot and killed eight Syrian civilians, including four women and three children, according to a Syrian monitoring group. Another eight people were wounded in the incident.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that Turkish troops opened fire on the civilians as they tried to cross into Turkey from the northern countryside of Jisr al-Shughur in Idlib province.

SOHR claims that Turkish forces have killed as many as 60 civilians since the beginning of the year.
