Syria regime aircraft kept up their relentless bombing runs around the country Friday one day after nearly 250 civilians and fighters were killed in one of the war's bloodiest days in recent months.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a anti-regime group of activists based in Britain, said of the 242 victims Thursday, half perished in government airstrikes.The surge was largely due to more than 60 airstrikes carried out against the Damascus suburbs, the Observatory said, as a rebel leader ordered a barrage of rockets and mortar bombs against regime positions in Damascus, believed to have killed around 10 people, including six civilians.The Observatory said 94 people, among them 22 fighters, were killed Thursday in the Ghouta suburbs. The Observatory said 10 people were killed in the Ghouta suburbs by airstrikes Friday. The Observatory said it already has recorded some 650 airstrikes across Syria this month.
