Air strikes hit hospital, kill 11 civilians
Regime and Russian air strikes on northwestern Syria on Wednesday killed 11 civilians including four children and knocked a hospital out of service, a monitor said. The raids are the latest in an uptick in deadly government and Russian bombardment since late April on the jihadist-administered region of Idlib despite a months-old truce deal.
Regime air strikes killed seven civilians including three children in the town of Jisr al-Shughur in Idlib province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor that relies on sources inside Syria for its information.
Three civilians died after the hospital was hit, while four were killed elsewhere in the town, said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.
Rescue workers known as the White Helmets said missiles targeted the hospital and residential neighbourhoods in Jisr al-Shughur.
