Syrian Air Force Targets Rebel-Held Positions in Aleppo

Intensive bombings have pummeled Syria's rebel-held eastern neighbourhoods of the city of Aleppo on Friday.

The aftermath of the strikes on the al-Shaar neighbourhood was shown in a video uploaded by an opposition-affiliated media outlet on Friday.The video by Halab News Network opens with footage of a burning building surrounded by wreckage.

The attacks mark the fourth day of renewed assault by Syrian government warplanes on eastern Aleppo districts, a rebel-held enclave of 275,000 people.

The strikes hit an area housing several hospitals and sent the chief of a paediatrics clinic in a frantic search for a place to move his young patients. So far, more than 100 people have been killed across northern Syria since Tuesday.
