London: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Tuesday that unidentified jets hit a major camp for the Islamic Ahrar Al Sham opposition group in the province of Idlib, northwestern Syria, leaving a large number of dead and injuries.
The Observatory was quoted by Reuters as saying that “top trainers from among Ahrar al Sham’s leaders were at the camp, located in the Sheikh Bahar area of rural Idlib.”

The group could not be reached for comment. In the past 24 hours, Syrian warplanes intensified raids in the province, which is mainly dominated by Ahrar al Sham and the Nusra Front, an al-Qaeda offshoot.

Separately, the Syrian opposition accused the Russian forces of deliberately targeting hospitals, adding that the Russians had destroyed around 10 hospitals since they engaged in the war in Syria.

Activists from the Syrian opposition said “more than 25 Syrians were killed and at least 200 were injured, mostly women and children, when the Russian air forces conducted 17 airstrikes on the central city of Idlib, north Syria. Two of the airstrikes hit the National Hospital in the city and destroyed it.”

The Syrian opposition had announced earlier it has “documented” the Russian jets hitting large and medium hospitals in several parts of Syria, killing a large number of patients.
