BEIRUT: Syrian regime air strikes killed four civilians including two children Sunday in a northwestern bastion of opposition, a Britain-based war monitor said, reports AFP.

The Idlib region of some three million people is supposed to be protected by a September buffer zone deal, but the jihadist-run enclave has come under mounting bombardment by the government and its ally Russia since late April.

An air raid by Damascus aircraft on Sunday took the lives of two adults and two children in the village of Josef in Idlib province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
