Several killed in air raids on markets in Syria’s Idlib province

At least 10 civilians have been killed in Syrian government air raids on rebel-controlled towns in the country’s northwest, according to rescue workers who operate in opposition-held areas.

The Syrian Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets, said the raids targeted two separate vegetable markets in the towns of Maaret al-Numan and Saraqeb on Monday.

At least nine people were killed in Maaret al-Numan and one person died in Saraqeb, according to Ahmed Sheikho, a spokesperson for the Civil Defence. At least 18 others – five in Maaret al-Numan and 13 in Saraqeb – were wounded in the attacks, he added.
