Turkish jets have reportedly conducted fresh airstrikes on Syria’s northwestern city of al-Bab, leaving at least 47 civilians dead in yet another act of aggression against the Arab country.

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 14 children and nine women were among the fatalities of Thursday’s aerial assaults.

Turkish warplanes regularly carry out airstrikes in support of their ground incursion into Syria.

Similar Turkish air raids had killed seven civilians in al-Bab on Wednesday.

On the same day, 14 Turkish forces were also said to have been killed around the Syrian city, in the country's biggest loss so far in its military campaign in Syria.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the operation, dubbed "Euphrates Shield," was aimed at “terror groups” such as Daesh and the Democratic Union Party (PYD), a US-backed Kurdish group based in Syria.
