At least 13 civilians including five children have been killed in Syrian government air strikes in Idlib province.

The attacks came just a day after the UN human rights chief warned that those responsible for the latest wave of killings could be charged with war crimes.

The Syrian government, backed by Russian forces, launched an offensive to capture idlib in late April.

Idlib and parts of the neighbouring provinces of Aleppo, Hama, and Latakia are under the control of Hayat Tahrir al Sham, a militant group led by Syria’s former Al Qaeda affiliate, and other rebel groups.

The region is supposed to be protected from a massive regime offensive by a September buffer zone deal, but it has come under increasing bombardment by the regime and its Russian ally over the past three months
