Death toll up to 26 in Syrian strike: Activists
Beirut: The death toll from a government helicopter strike on a rebel-held town near the northern city of Aleppo has risen to 26 people including four children, said Syrian activists.
A military helicopter targeted a compound of the rebel group known as the Tawhid Brigade in the town of al-Bab, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The bombs missed their target and hit the Nafasin market instead, killing 26 people, most of them civilians.
Three of those who died in the attack were rebel fighters, said Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Observatory.
The group initially reported six dead from yesterday`s attack.
It raised the death toll to 26 today when it received more information on the attack from activists on the ground.
