Syria air strike leaves 16 dead, including 7 children: NGO

An air strike on Idlib province in northwest Syria on Sunday killed at least 16 people, including seven children and five women, a monitoring group said.

"The number of people killed in the air strike in the village of Bara in Jabal al-Zawiya has risen to at least 16," said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, revising an earlier death toll of four.


The Observatory said Bara has been under rebel control since mid-July.

The air strike was launched on the third day of a failed truce that was proposed by international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha that ends on Monday.
