Eight Members Of A Family Killed In Syria Raid

Eight members of a single family were Saturday killed when an aircraft said to belong to the Syrian government dropped explosive-packed barrel bombs on a town in the southern Syrian province of Daraa, a monitor said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a man, his wife and their six children were killed in the raid on the town of Dael.

Another man was killed in barrel bomb raids elsewhere in the southern province, the Britain-based group said.


A video from Dael showed men carrying the remains of bodies after the attack.

“This is all that remains of the family,” one man says.

“Where is Arab pride in the holy month of Ramadan? This is what is happening to children.”

The Observatory said the children were aged 13, 12, 11, 10, eight and two.

Syrian regime forces control Daraa city, but the province is divided between rebel and government control.
