At least 10 people, including three children, died in bombings by the Syrian Army on Saturday after a bloody week that has seen 100 civilians killed, a UK-based war monitor has said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that Damascus planes had carried out almost 40 bombings in various parts of Idlib and Hama provinces, strongholds of opposing armed groups. Nine civilians, including two children, died in Ariha town of Idlib and 28 were injured in the bombing by government planes, the SOHR was cited as saying by Efe news. Another child was killed in air strikes outside Kafr Auid, also in Idlib, the last region controlled by rebel and Islamist groups.

According to the SOHR, Russian planes carried out bombings in Hama. It further said that the Syrian Army conducted artillery and helicopter attacks in Aleppo province, neighbouring Hama and Idlib, where there were still rebel fighters present. An anonymous Syrian military source told Efe news that the Syrian Army attacked “intensely” with artillery and missiles, and with air support from its own government and Russia, the north and northwest of Hama in the past 48 hours.
