Airstrikes kill more than 58 people in northern Syria

Two days of airstrikes in northern Syria have killed at least 58 people and wounded nearly 300, according to a hospital director.

One strike hit near a hospital in Idlib and forced the facility to close. Workers turned the underground ambulance area into a trauma center, the source said. This is the only part of the hospital in use.

An adjacent hospital — the newly built Ibn Sina Center — was also damaged in the Monday strike but was unoccupied at the time, he said.

The death toll is expected to rise as rescuers continue to pull victims from the rubble.

Video posted by the Syrian Civil Defense, a volunteer search-and-rescue operation, showed responders digging through the rubble, searching for survivors. One rescuer could be seen lifting the body of a young boy in his arms, his face covered in dust.
