10 civilians dead in air strike on Syria rebel town

three strikes targeted the main road and centre of the rebel-held town of Atareb in Aleppo province

At least 10 civilians were killed, including five children, in air strikes Friday on the rebel-held town of Atareb in Aleppo province of northern Syria, a monitor said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said three strikes targeted the main road and centre of the town, warning the death toll could rise because of a large number of seriously wounded.

It was unclear if Syrian regime warplanes or aircraft of its Russian allies carried out what the Observatory called “a new massacre” that left children dismembered.
