Air strikes kill 48 in Syria

 




BEIRUT — At least 48 people, including rebel fighters, have been killed in Syrian government air bombardments around a town in the central province of Homs, a human rights monitoring group said on Wednesday.

Two days of air strikes left women and children among the dead, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors violence in Syria.

About a dozen fighters and multiple rebel commanders were also confirmed killed in the bombardment, which targeted Talbiseh, a town north of the city of Homs on the country’s main north-south highway.

In May, Syrian rebels had abandoned their last stronghold in the heart of Homs city, which had been an epicentre of the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad.

The death toll from the bombardment on Talbiseh was expected to rise because dozens of people including children were in critical condition, the Observatory said.

More than 190,000 people have been killed in Syria’s conflict and millions more displaced, according to the United Nations. The conflict began more than three years ago as a peaceful protest movement and turned into civil war after a government crackdown.
