AMMAN, Dec 15 (KUNA) -- Some 40 civilians and opposition fighters have been killed in clashes with the regime and by airstrikes in Syria's Idlib, Aleppo and Deir Azzor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday night.
Nine people were killed and others critically injured, among them women and children, when the jet fighters hit Idlib's Kafr Takharim and Khan Sheikhoun towns, northwest of the country. Deaths are likely to rise, the monitoring group, based in Britain, said.
Also in Idlib, fighters of Al-Nusra Front, Jund Al-Aqsa and Ahrar Asham Islamist group have had full control of Beseeda following clashes with Syrian troops that withdrew from the village.
In Deir Azzor, air raids killed 11 people in the province's southeast suburbs.
Meanwhile, an airstrike by the US-led coalition targeting an Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) premises in Deir Azzour's Al-Bukamal border town with Iraq, killed at least four militants and injured many from the insurgent group.
Another raid on the village of Tabia Jazeera in Deir Azzor province, left many killed or wounded, the Observatory said.
Meanwhile, 14 opposition members were killed in clashes that have been on since Sunday night with Syrian troops supported by National Defense Force and Hezbollah, Iranian and Afghan fighters north of Aleppo.
In the south, a commander was killed in clashes between Nusra Front and the Yarmouk Brigade in the town of Sahm Al-Jolan, west of Daraa. A man was also killed and awoman wounded.
Opposition voices in Daraa appealed to both sides to practice self-restraint, spare their fighters' blood and direct their weapons to the regime. (pickup previous) tk.msa
