Beirut - At least 12 people were killed when a Syrian army fighter jet crashed into a busy market place in the rebel-held north-western town of Ariha on Monday, a monitor said.
Most of the dead were civilians on the ground in the town in Idlib province, which fell to a coalition of Islamist insurgents in May, according to the UK-based Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence across Syria.
