The warplanes of the Assad regime have carried out another mass killing, with at least 34 people dead in attacks on a vegetable market in Idlib city in northwest Syria.
The Local Coordination Committees said 50 were injured when two missiles hit the market.
There are graphic images of the victims, including children burned beyond recognition.
The strikes come less than two weeks after dozens of people were slain and about 250 injured in bombing near the National Hospital in the city.
On Saturday, the Assad regime had announced a truce with the opposition covering Idlib city, the besieged opposition-held town of Zabadani in Damascus Province, and the regime enclaves of al-Fu’ah and Kafraya north of Idlib.
