21 civilians killed in Syria’s Idlib marketplace by government airstrikes
At least three children and 18 others have been killed in a series of airstrikes on a marketplace in Syria.
According to the activist-run Kafranbel Media Centre, the civilians were killed in the opposition-controlled town of Kafranbel in north-western Syria.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group confirmed the deaths, and said members of the local police force were among the group targeted.
Russia’s military announced last month it was resuming its airstrikes on the north-western Idlib province and central Homs province in support of the government’s efforts to suppress a years-long uprising against its national authority.
However Kafranbel is not on any front lines of the war.
