War plane strikes Syrian town, 30 killed, activists say

August 15, 2012 17:52

BEIRUT- A Syrian war plane bombarded the northern border town of Azaz on Wednesday, activists said, killing at least 30 people.

Residents screaming and shouting "God is greatest", carried bloodied bodies away from collapsed concrete buildings, video published by activists on YouTube showed.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said dozens were killed. An activist in the town said at least 30 bodies had been found, and activists were still searching the wreckage for more dead.

"A fighter jet flew over the town and first it fired at a car, and blew it up. Then it started firing on a street nearby and several buildings collapsed, there was nothing we could do. I expect the death toll will climb as we keep digging through the rubble," the activist, who called himself Anwar, told Reuters.
