The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a UK-based anti-government rights group, says that 18 people have been killed in a government airstrike on a rebel field hospital in the southern city of Deraa, where the Syrian uprising began almost two years ago.

The group said that among those killed were eight rebel fighters, three medics, one woman and one young girl.
