15 civilians dead in strikes on Syria rebel town: Monitor

AFP , Friday 8 Jul 2016

A child was among at least 15 civilians killed in air strikes on a rebel-held town in northwestern Syria on Friday, a monitoring group said.

Around 40 people were also wounded in the strikes on the town of Darkush, near the Turkish border, which is held by Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front and allied rebel groups, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The Britain-based monitor had no immediate word on who carried out the strikes but said it was likely to have been either the Syrian government or its ally Russia, rather than the US-led coalition.
