BEIRUT - Syria rejected as "fabricated" US accusations that its forces are targeting civilians with air strikes and said Washington would do better to criticize hardline Islamic State fighters who have killed American citizens.

The US State Department said on Wednesday it was "horrified" by Syrian government bombings in Raqqa province which it said had killed "dozens of civilians and demolished residential areas".

"The Syrian Arab Army does not target civilians and will not do so," the state news agency SANA quoted Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi as saying late on Thursday.
