AMMAN - At least 27 people were killed and dozens wounded on Tuesday by a Syrian air raid on a cattle market in territory controlled by the hard-line Islamic State, a monitoring group said.
The raid hit the main livestock market in Khansaa, a village south of the Kurdish-held city of Qamishli in northeastern Syria. Several thousand Bedouin Arab traders and customers had gathered in the cattle market, one of the region's largest.
The British-based Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence across the country through a network of sources on the ground, said a final tally from several hospitals in the region put the death toll at 27, with more injured. Earlier, the monitor said the strike resulted in "tens of dead and injured".
