The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Syrian regime airstrikes have killed 182 people, including 60 children under the age of 18, over the past week.

Rami Abdel-Rahman, Observatory Director, said on Monday in Beirut that they have been able to document the martyrdom of 182 civilians, including 60 children, 38 women and 84 men, as a result of strikes by warplanes and helicopters during the past seven days.

He added that 300 other civilians were also wounded.

Abdel-Rahman said Syrian government forces have carried out 602 air raids on rebel-held areas since last Sunday.

He said elsewhere, members of the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Nusra Front launched a major assault on the northern city of Idlib.

“The attack was carried out by some rebels inside the city and others from al-Nusra Front who were positioned outside Idlib, mainly on its outskirts,” he said.

Abdel-Rahman said four suicide bombers blew themselves up at on army checkpoint at the outskirts of the city, a regime hold-out in the rebel-dominated north-western province, killing at least 10 troops.
