BEIRUT: Six people, including two children, were killed on Tuesday in Russian strikes on a displacement camp in Syria´s northwest, the country´s last main rebel bastion, a war monitor said.

Tensions have soared in northwest Syria since a drone attack on a military academy graduation ceremony in Homs earlier this month killed dozens of people, with the government blaming “terrorists”. “Six civilians, including a woman and two of her children, were killed and eight others injured after Russian warplanes carried out two air strikes on a camp for displaced people” in the west of Idlib province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
