Atleast 10 people killed in Syrian airstrike
Beirut: Syrian opposition activists say an airstrike on a market in a rebel-held town in the country's northwest has killed at least 10 civilians.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human
Rights said Monday's airstrike on the market in Maaret al-Numan killed 10 and wounded others.
The Aleppo Media Center, an activist collective that covers rebel-held areas in northern Syria also said 10 civilians were killed and dozens were wounded.
The town is in Idlib province, the country's last opposition stronghold.
Syrian troops launched a four-month offensive earlier this year against Idlib, which is dominated by al-Qaida-linked militants.
The Syrian government offensive forced hundreds of thousands of civilians to flee their homes. A fragile cease-fire halted the advance at the
end of August, but in recent weeks it has been repeatedly violated.
