Airstrike Kills Dozens At Syrian Refugee Camp


Damascus:  Syrian pro-opposition activists say an airstrike has hit a refugee camp in northern Syria, near the border with Turkey, killing and wounding dozens of people displaced from the country’s devastating civil war.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says a camp in near Sarmada, in the northwestern Idlib province near the Turkish border, was struck on Thursday afternoon.

It was not clear who carried out the airstrike and the Observatory did not immediately have a breakdown of the casualties.

The Local Coordination Committees network says first responders are at the site, extinguishing fires that have erupted in the impacted zone. A photo that was posted on the LCC’s Facebook page shows at least a dozen tents burned to the ground.
