BEIRUT: Syrian government air strikes on opposition-held towns across the country killed at least 44 people on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) and wounded more than 100, a monitoring group said. In Jassem in the southern province of Daraa, 16 civilians were killed in four air strikes, while 25 were wounded, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The strikes came in response to a major rebel offensive that has been under way in southern Syria for months. “As usual, the regime is striking populated areas in order to make civilian supporters of opposition fighters turn against them,” Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said.
