Heavy bombardment of rebel-held areas in eastern Aleppo killed at least 70 people and destroyed at least 40 buildings in one day. Graphic images show rescue workers and civilians digging in the rubble of bombed buildings and pulling out bodies – many of them young children and babies.
Residents said the streets were deserted as the 250,000 people still trapped in the besieged opposition-held sector of Aleppo sought shelter from jets. The rebels and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring body described raids by warplanes they said must belong to Russia. Residents also spoke of attacks by helicopters using bombs made from oil drums, a tactic usually attributed to the Syrian army.
