Syrian warplanes kill 24 in rebel-held Idlib

Damascus, Sep 11 (IANS) A total of 24 people were killed on Saturday by airstrikes against rebel-held areas in the northwestern province of Idlib, a monitor group reported.

The airstrikes targeted several areas in Idlib, mainly the Jisr al-Shughour area largely under the control of the rebels’ Jaish al-Fateh, or Army of Conquest, Xinhua quoted the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as saying.

The shelling comes as the Syrian army advanced recently in the countryside of the coastal city of Latakia, stepping closer to the rebel stronghold Jisr al-Shughour.

The Britain-based watchdog group said the death toll could rise due to the high numbers of people in critical condition.

Separately, state news agency SANA said the Islamic State terrorist group fired several rockets on the eastern city of Deir al-Zour in Syria, killing nine people.
