More than 36 Syrian civilians killed in Idlib 'by Russian and Assad regime strikes'

More than 36 Syrian civilians killed in Idlib 'by Russian and Assad regime strikes'Regime and Russian air strikes killed 50 people in northwest Syria on Monday, most of them in a crowded market, a war monitor said, in the latest violence to plague the opposition bastion. In the town of Maaret al-Numan in Idlib province, men covered in blood were carried away from the market by residents and rescue workers, who used mattresses as makeshift stretchers, an AFP photographer said. He saw the corpse of one man sprawled on the ground near a motorcycle, rubble surrounding his lifeless body. With his eyes closed and his face covered in dust, another man clutched the arms of two people helping him out of the bombed area, the photographer added. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said air strikes on the vegetable market and surrounding areas in Maaret al-Numan killed 36 civilians and two unidentified persons.

"The Russian air force was not carrying out any missions in this part of Syria," said a defence ministry statement. More than 100 other people were wounded, according to the monitor, which said many of those injured were in a critical condition and people remained trapped under the rubble. The head of the local hospital, Radwan Shardub, described his horror at seeing "burnt and carbonised bodies, and body parts". "It's boundless criminality to shameful international silence," he said. The White Helmets rescue group said one of its volunteers was killed during the raids, raising the number of rescue workers killed since April to at least 6.

The spike in violence has killed more than 690 civilians, and damaged or knocked out of service two dozen health facilities in jihadist-held territory. More than 330,000 people have fled violence in the area over the past three months, according to the United Nations.

Bernie Sanders Employees Demand $15 Hourly. 1 Strategist Calls That ‘Ridiculous’.

Bernie Sanders Employees Demand $15 Hourly. 1 Strategist Calls That ‘Ridiculous’.Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s campaign staffers are demanding wages of at least $15 hourly, but a campaign strategist is calling that prospect “ridiculous,� saying productivity would have to be cut to stay within budget.After facing criticism earlier in July, the Vermont senator defended how he compensates his staff.“I’m very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,� he told the Des Moines Register on Friday. “And that contract was ratified by the employees of the campaign, and it not only provides pay of at least $15 an hour, it also provides, I think, the best health care benefits that any employer can provide for our field organizers.�Sanders’s campaign manager Faiz Shakir said as negotiations continue, the campaign would be “limiting hours,� he told Newsweek.“We look forward to continuing those discussions and obviously are disappointed that some individuals decided to damage the integrity of these efforts before they were concluded,� he said. “As these discussions continue, we are limiting hours so no employee is receiving less than $15 for any hours worked.�Republican strategist and campaign manager Joe Desilets told the Daily Caller News Foundation that less than $15 hourly is relatively well-paid for certain positions.He said $13 hourly is “probably on the high end of standard.�
