Dozens dead or missing after air strike flattens family shelter in Syria

Smoke rises after airstrikes in Kafr Nabel of the Idlib province, western Syria yesterday.

Dozens of civilians are dead or missing after an air strike on a shelter for the displaced in an Islamic State-held village in northern Syria, activists say.

The activist-run Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently said a school sheltering 50 families in Mansoura was levelled by air strikes on Tuesday morning.

Mansoura is 16 miles west of Raqqa, the de facto capital to the extremists’ so-called caliphate.
The activist group said the families are still unaccounted for.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 33 bodies had been pulled from the rubble.
The two organisations rely on local contacts to smuggle news out of IS-held territory.
