Damascus: Russian air strikes on the Islamic State group bastion of Raqa in northern Syria on Thursday killed at least 30 people, including civilians and extremists, a monitoring group said today. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 10 raids hit the city and its outskirts, wounding at least 70 others.
The monitor could not specify how many of those killed were Daesh militants. Earlier, Air strikes on the Islamic State group’s de facto Syrian capital Raqa killed 25 civilians, six of them children, a monitoring group said.
“Dozens more were wounded, some of them critically,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, adding it was not immediately able to determine who carried out the Tuesday raids.
The Syrian government, its ally Russia and a US-led coalition have all carried out air strikes against IS in Raqa.
