BEIRUT- Syrian government warplanes killed at least 15 people in air raids on a town in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor on Friday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

The raids hit the town of al-Boulil, near a military airport. Four women and a child were among those killed, the British-based Observatory said.

Syrian government forces have been fighting against Islamic State in the area. The jihadist group controls most of Deir al-Zor province and has laid siege since March last year to the remaining government-held areas in the province's capital, Deir al-Zor city.
