Regime air strikes kill 15 in Syria

Syrian government air strikes killed 15 civilians, 12 of them in a market, as fierce fighting raged for the jihadist-held northwest, a monitor said yesterday.

Meanwhile, government forces battled to repel a jihadist counteroffensive around the town of Kafr Nabuda that has left more than 50 combatants dead in 24 hours, a source said.

At least 12 people were killed and another 18 wounded when the warplanes hit the jihadist-held Idlib province town of Maarat al-Numan around midnight (2100 GMT). Two more civilians were killed yesterday in air strikes on nearby Maaret Hermeh, the Observatory said. An third was killed in strikes on the town of Jisr al-Shughur, it added.
