U.S. drone imagery shows possible atrocities by Turkish-backed forces in Syria

Footage
captured by U.S. surveillance aircraft over northern Syria has
documented several incidents that military officials say may constitute
war crimes on the part of Turkish-backed forces there, a U.S. official
said.If
verified, the imagery could provide credibility to allegations that the
offensive Turkey launched over Western objections last month has
resulted in repeated abuses against Syrian Kurds who have been an
important U.S. partner against the Islamic State.
