BEIRUT – Syrian government aircraft bombed rebel-held areas in the capital's suburbs and a northern town and surrounding villages controlled by the Islamic State group, including a strike on a local hospital, killing at least 23 people Wednesday, activists said.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the airstrikes on the town of Dayr Hafir and surrounding villages in the northern province of Aleppo killed at least 12 people, including women and children, and wounded at least 40. The group said the casualty figures are likely to rise.
