The Observatory said there were casualties in the air strikes, but that it had no concrete figures.
A resident on the Turkish side of the Syria-Turkey frontier said strikes thjs morning also struck the Islamic State-controlled town of Tel Abyad. The town is home to a border crossing.
The resident, Mehmet Ozer, said the strikes hit an abandoned military base and an empty school.
