Syria regime launches 15 air raids around Palmyra: monitor


BEIRUT: Syrian government aircraft launched at least 15 strikes in and around the ancient city of Palymra on Monday, following its fall to the Islamic State group, a monitoring group said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the raids were the most intense since the jihadists overran the city on Thursday. “Since this morning, government aircraft have carried out at least 15 air strikes in Palmyra and the areas around it,” Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said. He said there were reports of casualties but he had no firm toll.
