Syrian regime raids kill civilians in ISIS-held town
Seven women and a child were among those killed in the raids on the northern province of Aleppo
At least 13 people were killed on Monday during Syrian government raids on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a monitor said, according to Agence France Presse.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said seven women and a child were among those killed in the raids on the ISIS-held town of Al-Bab.
One of the places hit in the town located in northern Aleppo province was a market selling petrol, the Britain-based monitor said.
More than 40 people were wounded and 10 others were still missing after the raids.
The Local Coordination Committees activist network said charred bodies were recovered from the site of one of the strikes.
On Saturday, 34 people, mostly civilians and of which three were children, were killed in similar regime strikes on Al-Bab.
Syria’s army has regularly targeted Al-Bab, which has been held by ISIS since early 2014.
The Syrian government forces have been repeatedly accused of indiscriminately using barrel bombs on civilian areas. The regime denies deploying the weapons.
The bombs are crudely constructed from weapons fashioned from barrels and other vessels such as gas cylinders packed with explosives and scraps of metal.
