DAMASCUS, March 18 (Xinhua) -- Shelling by Kurdish forces on the rebel-held Afrin city and its countryside in northern Syria killed five people including children on Wednesday, a war monitor reported.

The shelling also wounded 15 others in the northwestern countryside of Afrin, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Turkey and allied Syrian rebels captured Afrin from the Kurdish-led militias in March of 2018.

Activists have made several reports about the situation in Turkey-controlled areas in northern Syria, highlighting a state of rampant lawlessness in the region.
