8 children among 21 killed in Syria Idlib strikes

Airstrikes by regime and Russian aircraft on extremist and opposition positions in Idlib province killed at least 21 civilians, including eight children, AFP reported Monday (January 8th).

The strikes carried out on Sunday were the latest against extremists and opposition fighters in a week-old regime offensive on Idlib, the last province in Syria outside regime control.

The raid left "at least 21 dead, including eight children and 11 members of the same family" west of the town of Sinjar in the south-east of the province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Regime and Russian strikes on Sunday pounded several parts of Idlib, said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman, with regime forces on Monday increasing the pressure in Idlib and to break a siege in Eastern Ghouta near Damascus.
