‘Russian Airstrikes’ Kill 32 Syrian Civilians

Suspected Russian airstrikes have killed 32 civilians, half of them women and children, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said. Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman told the AFP news agency the jets bombed Raqqa, the self-declared capital of Islamic State’s caliphate.

The warplanes also bombed the towns of Azaz and al Bab in Aleppo province, Mr Rahman said. Six children and 11 women were among the dead, with dozens of people wounded, according to the British-based monitoring group.

The death toll in Raqqa included two rescue workers, according to Mr Rahman, who added no suspected militants were killed in the three areas hit.
