According to the Syrian observatory for human rights, one child was killed as a result of an air strike on a residential area in Idlib yesterday. In a video uploaded on the internet, civil Defence workers can be seen rushing to the site of the attack by motorbike, said to be Talmins village in the Idlib province of Syria. They can be seen digging through the rubble of a damaged building and carrying survivors to a nearby ambulance. Western countries and human rights activists have accused the air forces of the syrian government and its ally Russia of deliberately attacking hospitals and other civilian infrastructure in areas controlled by rebels. Moscow and Damascus say their air campaign is directed only against militants. Meanwhile, the un security council will hold an emergency meeting today on the dire humanitarian crisis unfolding in Aleppo.
