BEIRUT – Opposition monitoring groups say air raids have struck a diesel market in northwestern Syria, killing at least eight people, including a media activist.
The Local Coordination Committees says eight people were killed in Monday's strikes on the village of Termanin, including Ibrahim Omar, who used to report for Qatar-based Al-Jazeera TV. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the raids killed 14 and wounded dozens.
Conflicting reports of death tolls are common in the aftermath of attacks in Syria.
Amateur videos posted online showed firefighters trying to extinguish several burning tanker trucks. The videos appeared genuine and corresponded to other Associated Press reporting.
Syria-based activist Ahmad Barbour said Omar had gone to Termanin to cover the aftermath of the first air raid when another struck, killing him instantly.
