At least 27 people were killed Thursday when a regime warplane targeted a refugee camp near the Syrian town of Sarmada in the Idlib province, according to reports from a nearby local field hospital.
An Anadolu Agency correspondent said the casualties reported by the hospital included women and children.
Earlier, eight had been reported killed and 30 injured, a Syrian Civil Defense official said.
Ahmed Shakir, a Civil Defense official, told Anadolu Agency that a regime warplane had targeted the Kamuna refugee camp leaving its tents in flames.
Residents from Aleppo, Idlib and Latakia in Syria fled their homes because of regime attacks on opposition-controlled areas and sought refuge in the Kamuna camp near Sarmada, around 20 kilometers from the Turkish border.
Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since 2011, when the regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests.
