Russland bombardiert Flüchtlingslager in Syrien

„At least eight people were killed when jets believed to be Russian bombed a Syrian refugee camp on the border with Jordan on Tuesday, activists say. Dozens more were injured when tents at Hammad, a remote desert area, were struck around noon (09:00 GMT). Most of the casualties were reportedly families of members of a rebel group known as the Eastern Lions, which is fighting so-called Islamic State (IS). There was no immediate comment from Russia, which backs Syria’s government. However, a senior Western diplomat told the Reuters news agency that initial information suggested Russian aircraft carried out the raid. Last month, Russian jets twice attacked another Syrian rebel group’s base in the border town of Tanf, to the north-east. Said Seif, a local activist, told the Local Co-ordination Committees (LCC) network that cluster munitions were used in Tuesday’s air raid on the makeshift camp at Hammad. At least 15 people were killed and 40 others wounded, he said.“
