Air Strikes on Northern Syria kills 14 civilians

BEIRUT: 14 civilians killed and dozens wounded in he air strikes on Friday, in a rebel-held town in northern Syria.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights are unsure whether the raids on Orum al-Kubra in Aleppo province were executed by the allied Russian aircraft or the regime.
“The air strikes killed 14 civilians, including three children and dozens were injured. The toll may rise… because there are people still trapped under the rubble,” said Rami Abdel Rahman, the Observatory head.
The air strikes bombarded the jihadists and rebels held province of Idlib.
Lives of almost one million syrian children are at risk because of this battle between Syrian government forces and rebels for the northwestern Idlib province. Short supply of water, medicine and food in the province is also an important issue o worry about, said Unicef
On Thursday the Syrian government dropped leaflets across the rural province, urging the locals to reconcile with its rule. Officials have warned that the government forces will take back Idlib by force if necessary.
Almost 2.9 million people live in Idlib and surrou­nding opposition-held areas… War cannot be allowed to go to Idlib”, said UN humanitarian adviser on Syria, Jan Egeland.
