15 killed in Assad regime attack on mosque

At least 15 people were killed when Syrian regime air forces targeted a mosque during Friday prayers in the northern province of Idlib, the Syrian Revolution General Commission said.

The commission also said that dozens were wounded in the attack on the village of Muntif.

Amnesty International had recently criticised the Assad regime for targeting civilians and said that attacks should be investigated as war crimes.

The Syrian civil war, which entered its fifth year this month, has claimed more than 220,000 lives so far, according to the UN.
