Activists: Syrian airstrike kills 21 in Aleppo
BEIRUT — A Syrian government airstrike hit a crowded vegetable market in a rebel-controlled neighborhood of the northern city of Aleppo on Saturday, shattering cars and storefronts and killing at least 21 people, activists said.
For nearly two weeks, the Syrian government has pounded opposition-controlled areas of the divided city. Activists said more than 400 people have been killed since the assault began. Saturday’s airstrike slammed into a marketplace in the Tariq al-Bab neighborhood. Twenty-five people, including four children, were killed and dozens wounded.
