Syrian air raids kill at least 12 in southern town

Syrian activists say government airstrikes on a southern town have killed at least a dozen people, including children. The local coordination committees, an activist collective, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights both reported the strikes on Sunday on Jassim in the southern province of Daraa. The local coordination committees say the strikes were barrel bombs, large canisters packed with explosives and metal scraps, that cause massive damage on impact. It says at least 12 people were killed, including women and children. The UK-based Observatory, which relies on a network of activists inside Syria, put the death toll at 13. Both groups also reported govt airstrikes on the town of Nawa, which opposition forces captured earlier this month.
