A severely injured child was rushed to an ambulance and onwards to hospital at the Kobane/Aran checkpoint on the Syrian border, Wednesday. The boy was one of three Syrian Kurdish children injured in a land-mine blast in the area.

The boys, 14-year-old Ahmed Mustafa, 12-year-old Diyar Eli, and 7-year-old Mazhar Mahmood, were wounded trying to cross a field on the border with landmines.

There have been intense battles on the Syrian side of the border between Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and fighters associated with the so-called Islamic State (formerly ISIS, ISIL). An estimated 130,000 people have fled to Turkey over recent days.
