Airstrikes on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group’s Syrian bastion of Raqqa on Saturday killed 40 civilians, including children, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said on Sunday.

The Britain-based group said it was unclear if the strikes were carried out by regime or Russian planes, adding that eight children were among those killed.
