• Syria raid kills 27


    DAMASCUS: Syrian warplanes killed 27 civilians in a raid on a village market on Thursday, as President Bashar al-Assad’s regime nearly completed the surrender of its chemical weapons stockpile. The air raid on the Aleppo provincial village of Atareb, where the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said three children were among the dead, came amid a massive aerial offensive on Aleppo’s rebel areas that began in mid-December. The campaign has killed hundreds, mostly civilians, and forced thousands of families to flee. Aleppo-based activist Abu Omar said that a market area was hit — “that’s why there were so many civilians killed.” “The regime is hitting back against the civilians who support the revolt” against Assad, he added.
