Missile strikes in Syria hit oil refineries and killed one person, as we read in Arab News:

 Missile strikes in northern Syria near the Turkish border killed one person and injured at least eleven others on Friday, Turkish state media and a source from the Turkish-backed faction that controls the region said.

Explosions rocked local oil refineries near the towns of Al-Bab and Jarablus, sparking large fires, a witness and Turkey’s state-owned Anadolu news agency said.

The source in the National Army, which controls swathes of northwest Syria where Turkish troops have a presence, said missile strikes had caused the blasts, wounding eleven people.

Anadolu said that they were ballistic missiles and that it was not clear who carried out the strikes, which it said injured 18 people.
