Russian air strike on Syria market kills 19: monitor

Source: France 24

Sixteen civilians were among 19 people killed Monday in a Russian air strike on a market in northwest Syria, a monitor said, in the latest violence to plague the opposition bastion.

At least 45 other people were wounded in the air raid that hit "a wholesale vegetable market in the town of Maaret al-Numan" in Idlib province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The death toll could still rise as many of those wounded are in a critical condition and some people are still trapped under rubble, the Britain-based monitor said.

Observatory head Rami Abdelrahman said 16 of those killed were civilians while three other bodies remain to be identified.

The latest strike comes one day after air raids by Damascus and its Russian ally on Syria's jihadist-run Idlib region killed 18 people, including a young citizen journalist.

3. Syria, Russia, US, Jihadists, Rebels; Who are the good guys & bad guys?

The dead are mostly just people going about their lives; neither
Saints nor Sinners.
