Aleppo – The Syrian Air Force on Wednesday launched several airstrikes in eastern Aleppo, targeting rebel-held districts. A major children’s hospital was repeatedly hit along with an adjacent blood bank.
The Syrian regime struck the neighborhoods of Shaar, Karam al-Bek and Sakhour in eastern Aleppo with barrel bombs and missiles.
“Assad’s air force bombed al-Bayan Children’s Hospital in Aleppo, causing dozens of casualties,” local media activist Ahmed Halwani told ARA News.
At least 26 civilians, including children, were killed. Halwani said that “many others remained trapped under the rubble.”
Local rescue teams have continued the search for survivors under the concrete ruins of destroyed buildings.
