Syria 'Scud-type' missile said to kill 20 in Aleppo
A Syrian missile killed at least 20 people in a rebel-held district of Aleppo on Tuesday, opposition activists said, as the army turns to longer-range weapons after losing bases in the country's second-largest city.


The use of what opposition activists said was a large missile of the same type as Russian-made Scuds  came after rebels overran army bases over the past two months from which troops had fired artillery, rebels have also landed three mortar bombs in the rarely-used presidential palace compound in the capital Damascus, opposition activists said on Tuesday.
