At least seven people were killed on Wednsday afternoon by shelling in the northern Syrian town of al-Bab, controlled by Turkey-backed opposition forces, according to opposition activists who blamed Syrian Kurdish fighters for the attack.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said seven died and 29 were wounded, while the Qasioun news agency, an activist collective, said eight people were killed and more than 25 were wounded.

Shelling and explosions in areas held by Turkey-backed Syrian opposition fighters over the past month have killed scores.
