Syria monitoring group: 40 dead in air strikes in northern Syria
BEIRUT - More than 40 people, many of them civilians, were killed by air strikes across northern Syria, a monitoring group said Thursday.


More than three years into a revolt against President Bashar Assad, rebels are struggling to counter government warplanes which routinely bomb military and civilian targets.


On Wednesday, 15 people were killed, including three from an emergency medical team, during five air raids in Atarib in the northern Aleppo province, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said early Thursday. (Reuters)
