Kurdish-backed fighters clashed with the Turkish military in tanks on the Syrian side of the border on Sunday, a monitoring group and Kurdish sources said.

“Turkish tanks advanced today near Al-Amarneh in Aleppo province, south of the border, and clashes broke out between them and fighters backed by Kurdish forces," Syrian Observatory for Human Rights head Rami Abdel Rahman said.

A source within northern Syria's autonomous Kurdish region confirmed the clashes; AFP reported.
