Mother, five children killed in Syria bombardment

A mother and her five children were among at least 19 civilians killed on Sunday in Syrian regime bombardment of the southern province of Daraa, a monitoring group says.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the six members of one family died in the rebel-held area of Dael.

All of the children were under the age of 18.

Two brothers and another relative were killed in another house in the same air attack, the Britain-based group says.

It says a regime barrel bomb attack in the Al-Karak al-Sharqi area killed six people in the same family, including three women and a child, as well as a couple.

Two more civilians died in raids on the rebel-held area of Tafas.
