39 dead in suspected Russia raids on two Syria markets: monitor
Beirut (AFP) - At least 39 civilians were killed Tuesday in suspected Russian air strikes on two markets in northern Syria, a monitoring group said.
The raids killed 16 civilians at a market for fuel in Maarat al-Naasan, a village in Idlib province, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Another 23 civilians, including five women, were killed after strikes on a village held by the Islamic State group in the northern Aleppo province.
Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP four IS jihadists were also killed in those raids on the village of Maskana, which hit a market as well.
