A leading rights group has warned that the Syrian Air Force is carrying out both deliberate air strikes against civilians and indiscriminate attacks.

Human Rights Watch says it visited 52 sites in north-western Syria, documenting 59 such unlawful attacks.

It points out that both types of attacks - estimated to have killed thousands - are serious violations of international law.
