BEIRUT: The widowed Syrian mechanic had a new lease on life after he married his second wife: he enrolled in a high school, graduating at 60 . The couple had five children, living in an impoverished quarter of a town in northern Syria.The strikes were reported on Tuesday by local activists, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the activist collective, the Aleppo Media Center. They are the latest victims of Syria's civil war and the government's relentless bombing campaign against opposition-held territories in northern Syria.The story of Mohammed Jafar Saleh, 70, is a human sketch of one of the 162,000 people estimated killed in Syria's civil war, now entering its fourth year.Saleh's first wife died over 15 years ago, said an activist from Marea who identified himself as Abu al-Hassan.
