Syrian or Russian air strikes killed more than a dozen people and severely damaged a hospital in a town in rebel-held Idlib province on Tuesday, local medical workers and a monitoring group said.

A spokesman at the hospital in Kafr Takharim told Reuters an air strike hit its courtyard killing 14 people, including patients.

The attacks came as Syria's air force and Russian jets intensified their bombardment of Idlib, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The Observatory said there were no deaths from the hospital strike, but that the bombardment had put it out of action.

Video uploaded bearing the Syrian civil defense White Helmets group logo purported to show the aftermath of the strike.
