8 children among 16 killed in Syrian strike, opposition group says

On the same day the first of six Patriot missile batteries intended to protect Turkey from Syrian threats became operational along the border, violence continued to rage inside Syria - including bombing that, according to an opposition group, killed eight children.

The slain children were among 16 people killed in strikes by Syrian warplanes in the Aleppo suburb of Manjab, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. The same group noted similar air attacks elsewhere in the Middle Eastern nation, while another opposition group - the Local Coordination Committees - said 96 people were dead nationwide.
