Airstrikes In Syria Kill 22 People, Mostly Children.

Airstrikes in Syria killed up to 22 people, mostly children, on Wednesday, October 19th,  when warplanes struck a residential area housing a school complex in the northern rebel-held province of Idlib.The activist-operated Idlib News network, which gave a lower toll of 17 people killed, said the strikes hit as the children were gathered outside the school complex. It said the death toll could rise as some of the wounded were reported to be in critical condition, the network added.
Idlib is the main Syrian opposition stronghold, though radical groups also have a large presence there. It has regularly been hit by Syrian and Russian warplanes as well as the U.S.-led coalition targeting Islamic State militants.
