Air strikes kill several civilians in north-western Syria

Russian and Syrian regime air strikes have killed 12 civilians in north-western Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says.

Earlier on Monday at least four people, including a woman and her child, were killed in air raids on Bsakla village, said the opposition’s Syrian Civil Defence rescue group, also known as White Helmets.

The raids came as Syrian forces, backed by Russian warplanes, continued to make advances into Idlib province, which bordersĀ  Turkey.

Ten of thousands of people have fled to the Turkish border over the past few days as the Syrian army pushes further into the stronghold.
