ANKARA - A helicopter thought to belong to Syrian government forces dropped barrel bombs on Turkey-backed rebels in northern Syria on Tuesday, the Turkish military said, killing two and wounding five others.

The Syrian military last week said it would bring down any Turkish war planes entering Syrian air space, a response to air strikes carried out by Turkey in northern Syria.
