    The death toll among Syrian Kurdish-led fighters battling a Turkish offensive has risen to 74, most of whom have been killed in the Tel Abyad area, Reuters news agency quoted the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as saying Saturday.

    Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman also said 49 fighters with Turkish backed Syrian rebel groups had been killed since the assault began on Wednesday.

    The death toll among civilians in Syria had climbed to 20 after two people died in the city of Qamishli, he said.

    Most of the civilian deaths were also in Tel Abyad, a border town that is one of the focal points of the operation.
