Tuesday's airstrikes come a day after activists reported the most widespread bombing in a single day since Syria's 19-month crisis began.

 

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees said fighting in the Yarmouk refugee camp broke out after midnight. They had no word on casualties.
