At least 30 civilians have been killed by Syrian government air strikes targeting Idlib province and Damascus suburbs, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Syria and a monitoring group said. Aljazeera has more:

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 19 people, including four children, were killed in raids hitting several neighbourhoods in Idlib province. Ten others were injured in the attack.

Al Jazeera’s correspondent in the province said barrel bombs and tens of air strikes had targeted the Jabal al-Zawiyah area.

In the Damascus suburb of Douma, air strikes killed at least 11 people, including women and children, medical sources told Al Jazeera. Witnesses said massive destruction was caused. Douma has been under government attack for 13 days in a row, with a death toll rising to over 150 civilians.

Al Jazeera’s Samara Kouatly, reporting from Douma, said aid workers have spent days trying to recover bodies from under the rubble. She added that Douma is running out of medical and aid supplies following recent air strikes as hundreds of those injured are in desperate need. The UK-based Syrian Observatory said nine people, including six children, were also killed in the Damascus suburb of Arbeen.
