BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) — A monitoring rights group says a Russian warplane struck a house in northwestern Syria near the Turkish border, killing seven civilians, including four children. Syrian Civil Defense volunteers rushed to the house on Friday to remove the bodies under the rubble. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and opposition media outlet Orient TV say the airstrike in Idlib was carried out by a Russian warplane following four other Russian airstrikes in a town further north. The sources of the airstrikes on could not be independently verified.
