Russia artillery fires, airstrikes Syria: 26 civilians dead




(MENAFN) At least 26 civilians have died after an artillery fire and Russian air strikes on two displacement camps and surrounding villages in eastern Syria, a monitor said on Saturday.

Nine children were among the dead, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Syrian regime forces and allied militia took Albu Kamal from the Islamic State group two days ago; however, jihadists mounted a severe fightback and recaptured it on Saturday.

The villages and displacement camps were full of people who had fled fighting in the town of Albu Kamal.
