Aleppo, Syria

The Week Middle East - - News -

School chil­dren killed: At least 26 peo­ple, many of them chil­dren, were killed last week in air strikes on a rebel-held vil­lage in north-western Syria. A school com­plex was re­port­edly among sev­eral lo­ca­tions tar­geted in the vil­lage of Haas, in Idlib prov­ince. It was not im­me­di­ately clear if the raids were car­ried out by Syr­ian govern­ment or Rus­sian war­planes. The in­ci­dent came as the govern­ment and its ally Rus­sia said they would con­tinue a mora­to­rium on the aerial bom­bard­ment of be­sieged, rebel-held east­ern dis­tricts of the city of Aleppo. Idlib is one of the last strongholds of the Syr­ian op­po­si­tion, and the prov­ince has been re­peat­edly bombed by the Syr­ian and Rus­sian air forces.
