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 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.
