At least four dead following blaze at Syrian oil facility

At least four people have been killed and 24 injured following a blaze that broke out at a Syrian oil facility.

The facility, which was used by Turkey-backed opposition forces was caused by a suspected missile-strike.

According to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Russian warships in the Mediterranean had fired three missiles that struck the oil facilities and tanker trucks in the region.

Over 180 trucks were destroyed by the blaze. The missiles used were reported as ballistic missiles but it is not clear who carried out the attacks.
