Chil­dren are killed in airstrikes

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Airstrikes in Syria killed 17 peo­ple, mostly chil­dren, yes­ter­day when war­planes struck a school com­plex in the north­ern rebel-held province of Idlib, ac­tivists said. The Idlib News net­work said the strikes hit as the chil­dren were gath­ered out­side the school com­plex in the vil­lage of Hass. The ac­tivist­op­er­ated group put the death toll at 17, and said most of the vic­tims were chil­dren. Idlib is the main Syr­ian op­po­si­tion strong­hold, though rad­i­cal groups also have a large pres­ence there. It has reg­u­larly been hit by Syr­ian and Rus­sian war­planes as well as the US-led coali­tion tar­get­ing ISIS mil­i­tants.
