Barrel bombs kill 100 in Syria, including women and children

More than 100 Syrians, including women and children, were killed on Friday by barrel bombs dropped by the Syrian air force on two districts in the city Aleppo. The area is controlled by Daesh/ISIS.

Local sources told Anadolu that 80 of the victims were killed by Syrian regime helicopters in the north-west of Aleppo. The other 20 were killed when regime forces targeted a market in the city. The same sources claimed that the areas hit by the bombs were residential and some distance from Daesh/ISIS positions.

The dead and wounded were taken to Al-Manbaj Hospital, the main hospital in the neighbourhood.
