Syrian air strike on city ‘leaves many dead’

Have your say

A SYRIAN government air strike has killed tens of people in a town near the central city of Hama, according to opposition activists.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said “tens of people” were killed in a strike by a fighter jet on Halfaya yesterday.

An amateur video released online shows more than a dozen dead or wounded people in the rubble of what an off camera narrator says was a bakery.

The attack came as the main international envoy was beginning talks in Damascus aimed at ending the civil war.

The video shows rubble and dust covering another pile of bodies along the building’s wall.
