Airstrikes in northwest Syria kill 14 civilians

Air strikes by the Syrian regime and its Russian ally on Sunday killed 14 civilians in the last major opposition bastion of Idlib in the country’s northwest, a war monitor said.
Moscow-backed government forces have upped their deadly bombardment of the jihadi-dominated region in recent weeks, chipping at its southern edge and causing tens of thousands to flee their homes.

Eight of those killed Sunday died in a regime barrel bomb attack in the town of Sarmeen, seven from the same family, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
