Fourteen people were killed in the town of Azaz near the Turkish border when missiles slammed into a school sheltering families fleeing the offensive and the children’s hospital, two residents and a medic said.

In a separate incident, missiles hit another hospital in the town of Marat Numan in Idlib province, in north western Syria, killing six nurses.
