Observatory: 517 dead including 151 children in air strikes on Aleppo and the surrounding countryside in two weeks

December 29, 2013

Beirut (AP) The  Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Sunday that 517 people have been killed, including 151 children, during two weeks of air strikes by regime forces on Aleppo and the surrounding countryside in the north of Syria

In an email, the Observatory said, “(the number) rose to 517, including 151 under the age of 18 and 46 women (…) due to constant bombardment by regime forces with barrel bombs and warplanes on areas in Aleppo and other cities, towns and villages in the surrounding countryside. This has occurred between the morning of the 15th this past month until last Saturday night.”
