UPDATE 3-Turkey says air strike hit Syria convoy, killed threeBEIRUT/ANKARA, Aug 19 (Reuters) – Turkey said a Syrian government air strike on a Turkish military convoy in northwest Syria killed three civilians and wounded 12 on Monday as Syrian troops advanced on rebels in a key town. The air strikes hit near the convoy that was approaching frontlines in Idlib province, two Turkey-backed rebel sources and a war monitor said. Ankara, which backs some of the rebel factions in the northwest, has forces stationed in Idlib under deals with Russia, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s most powerful ally.
