Wave Of Air Strikes Shelling Hits Syrias Rebel-held Bastion


BEIRUT – Dozens of air strikes and shelling hit parts of the last swathe of Syrian territory still held by rebels on Friday, a war monitor and civil defense group said, causing deaths and injuries.

Northwestern Syria is the last big area still in the hands of fighters seeking to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad, after the government recaptured the area around Damascus and the southwest earlier this year.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said dozens of strikes from helicopters and war planes had hit parts of northern Hama province and southern Idlib province — killing at least eight people — and western Aleppo province — killing at least 14 people.
