Beirut: Heavy casualties were reported in an air attack on a petrol station in north-eastern Syria on Thursday evening, a human rights group said.

According to the activists, at least thirty civilians died and around seventy were injured in the air strike that took place at a petrol station in the village of Ain Issa, in Raqqa province.

The injured were reportedly admitted to a hospital in Raqqa town.
The explosion took place some 40 kilometres south of the Tal al-Abyad border post. The deaths came a day after Syrian rebels seized control of a border crossing between Raqqa province and Turkey in heavy clashes with troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

Earlier in the day, Syria`s state-run TV said that a military helicopter that crashed near Damascus had clipped the tail of a passenger jet with 200 people aboard.

The TV also said that the jet landed safely at Damascus airport today and that nobody was injured.

The helicopter went down southeast of Douma, a Damascus suburb that has seen clashes in recent days. There were no further details on the crash.

Clashes were also reported from Syrian capital Damascus and the second largest city of Aleppo.
