The Aleppo Media Center, an activist collective that covers rebel-held areas in northern Syria also said 10 civilians were killed and dozens were wounded.

The town is in Idlib province, the country's last opposition stronghold. Syrian troops launched a four-month offensive earlier this year against Idlib, which is dominated by al-Qaida-linked militants.
