DAMASCUS — Rebels killed 28 soldiers in Syria’s northwestern battlefields Thursday, a watchdog said, as the regime launched new air strikes in what is seen as a desperate attempt to reverse opposition gains.
The fresh fighting came as the main opposition Syrian National Council hit back at US warnings of rising Islamic extremism among Syria’s rebels, saying the West and its partners were to blame for rising radicalisation.
And China, amid stalled international peace efforts, said it had made “constructive new suggestions” to end the bloodshed during talks with UN-Arab League peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.
The 28 soldiers were killed in attacks on three army checkpoints in northwestern Idlib province, on the main road from Damascus to the embattled city of Aleppo, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
