Syria war: Deadly air strikes hit Idlib markets

Air strikes on two markets in northwest Syria have killed more than 50 people, local sources told Al Jazeera, as Syria’s opposition negotiators said they were leaving peace talks that were held in Geneva.
The strikes were among the deadliest since a ceasefire took effect in Syria at the end of February, Rami Abdurrahman, chief of the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said.
The opposition’s Higher Negotiations Committee (HNC) announced its delegation was leaving Geneva because no advances were made in the talks.
Riad Hijab, the head of the HNC, had earlier warned that the delegation would leave Switzerland if the attacks on rebel-held towns would not stop.
It was not clear if Tuesday’s air strikes were carried out by Syrian or Russian war planes that have been deployed to Syria to support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The rescue workers said more than 40 people were killed in the town of Maarat al-Numan in the rebel stronghold of Idlib province.
Another 10 people were killed in an air strike on a market in the nearby town of Kafr Nubl. The deaths from the latest strike included five children, sources told Al Jazeera.
“We have more than 20 cars that have been moving dead and injured to hospitals in the area,” said Ahmad Sheikho, a member of the civil defence corps, a rescue service operating in opposition-held territory.
“The air strike at the central vegetable market in (Maarat al-Numan) was around noon. Another strike at the same time hit Kafr Nubl’s own market,” Sheikho said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the conflict through a network of sources on the ground, gave a slightly lower toll, saying at least 37 people were killed in Maarat al-Numan and seven were killed in Kafr Nubl.
Many of the injured are in a serious condition and the death toll is expected to rise, the observatory said.
The Syrian military could not immediately be reached for comment, and state news agency SANA made no mention of air strikes in Idlib.

  1. This is a superb train set. The table location for set up requirements to be substantial as any movement of a piece can shift the whole track and
    bring about any bridges or pieces on supports to slide off and
    collapse areas of the track. On the other hand, this is a minimal inconvenience for such a
