In Syria, at least 22 civilians were killed Wednesday as government forces backed by Russia bombed and shelled parts of Idlib — the last rebel-controlled province in Syria. The aid group known as the White Helmets said a missile loaded with “cluster bombs” struck a camp for internally displaced people. Among those injured were medical workers at a maternity hospital. Meanwhile, Israel launched fresh airstrikes overnight Tuesday on the outskirts of Syria’s capital Damascus. Syrian state media says two civilians were killed in the bombings, which were aimed at Syrian military targets as well as buildings used to house members of Iran’s Quds Force. The attacks have bolstered fears of an all-out conflict between Iran and Israel.
