Damascus: Syria’s air force killed at least 20 people, including 17 children, in the latest strike on battered Aleppo city. The air strikes came a day after at least 100 people, including some 80 civilians, died in a twin car bomb attack on a pro-regime area of Homs claimed by the Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra Front.
Despite the ongoing conflict, the regime of Bashar al-Assad is preparing for a presidential election slammed as a farce by the opposition and by the United States as a “parody of democracy”.
In Aleppo, Syria’s second city, twin air strikes hit a school in the
rebel-held Ansari neighborhood, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Rebel-held areas of Aleppo have come under massive assault from the air since mid-December.
