Rockets fired by terrorists on Sunday killed at least 11 people in the Syrian city of Aleppo held by President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, state news agency SANA reported.
SANA said the rockets fired by “terrorist groups” killed 11 “martyrs” and wounded 11 civilians in neighbourhoods of Aleppo.
The news agency originally reported that six civilians were among the dead, but its latest update did not give a breakdown.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, said the rockets were fired by jihadist groups, notably HTS.
It said 20 rockets were fired into several neighbourhoods of Aleppo, and put the toll at three dead civilians, including a child, and five members of the security services.
Aleppo sits in the north of the country next to Idlib, a province dominated by Syria’s former Al-Qaeda affiliate, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS).
