Civilians are “increasingly paying the price” as air strikes on Isis escalate in Syria and terrorists seek bloody retribution, the United Nations has warned.
In one incident, militants slit the throats of eight men accused of giving coordinates to the US-led coalition at the site of bombardment in their town.
Around 60 civilians, including 16 children and 12 women, were reportedly killed in air strikes that hit residential areas of Albo Kamal the day before.
Days later, 36 civilians died in an Isis attack on a government-held village in Hama province.
Many, including women and children, were killed by crossfire and snipers during battles, but others were found with their throats cut, the UN said.
