PARIS - Russia and Iran must do all they can to stop air strikes targeting civilians in Syria and reach a definitive cessation of hostilities, France said on Tuesday after at least 61 people were killed in the bombing of an outdoor market.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitoring group reported three air strikes hit the rebel-held town of Atareb in west of Aleppo on Monday. Jihadist rebels blamed Russian warplanes.

Atareb is inside what is known as a "de-escalation" zone under a deal agreed between Turkey, Russia and Iran to reduce violence in the area. Turkey has backed some rebel groups while Russia and Iran are the Syrian government's main allies.

"France condemns the bombings on 13 November in Atareb, which caused the deaths of dozens of civilians," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne told reporters in a daily briefing.
