New airstrikes have targeted a town in northwest Syria that was hit by a deadly chemical attack earlier this week, activists said.
It wasn’t immediately clear who conducted the strikes on Khan Sheikhoun, which hit on Friday and Saturday, though only Russian and Syrian regime aircraft have been bombing that area of rebel-held Idlib province.
The latest attacks follow a strike early Friday by the United States on a Syrian airbase. The US blames Syria for Tuesday’s chemical attack, which left at least 80 people dead and dozens more injured.
The new strikes came as Russia, the Syrian regime’s main ally, sent a frigate armed with cruise missiles to a Syrian port in an apparent show of force in response to the US strike.
