Air Raids on Syria's Aleppo Kill 9

Friday, 09 September 2016 09:04 AM

BEIRUT (AP) — Volunteer first responders in Syria's Aleppo say they have pulled the bodies of nine people, including four children, from the rubble following air raids on a rebel-held area.

The Syrian Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets, said helicopters dropped crude barrel bombs over the area on Friday. The activist-operated Aleppo Media Center also reported that nine were killed in the bombing.

Pro-government forces have recently stepped up attacks on rebel-held Aleppo, after regaining control this week of a major artery in the city's south, which rebel forces had taken last month.

Friday's air raids on the city's southern edge came after a wave of bombings, including suspected gas attacks, blamed on the government.

Aleppo, Syria's largest city and onetime commercial center, has been divided since 2012.
