25 killed in Aleppo airstrikes

At least 25 people were killed Friday when airstrikes hit several rebel-held neighbourhoods in Syria’s contested northern city of Aleppo, anti-government activists said, an escalation that placed added strain on a fragile cease-fire.

Aleppo, Syria’s largest city and former commercial centre, has seen sporadic clashes since the cease-fire took effect in late February, as government troops have advanced, boxing in opposition-held areas from all sides except for a corridor from the northwestern edge of the city.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 25 people were killed in the airstrikes in Aleppo’s Bustan Al Qasr neighbourhood and other parts of the city controlled by rebels. The Observatory described the series of airstrikes as the most intense on the city since the cease-fire began. The Local Coordination Committees, an activist-operated media outlet, said at least 25 people were killed in Friday’s airstrikes.
