BEIRUT- Warplanes believed to be Russian bombed an Islamic State-held town 130 km northeast of Damascus overnight, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Friday.

Islamic State captured the town of Qaryatain from government control in August. Rami Abdulrahman, director of the Observatory, told Reuters the warplanes were believed to be Russian.
