NGO: Death toll in Syrian bombing raid on Aleppo rises to 76

Published: 12.16.13, 10:40 / Israel News

Seventy-six people, including 28 children, were killed on Sunday when Syrian army helicopters dropped "barrel bombs" on the northern city of Aleppo, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday.

 

Barrel bombs are explosive-filled cylinders or oil barrels capable of causing widespread casualties and significant damage. The Britain-based Observatory said that rebel groups in Aleppo issued a statement asking civilians in government-held parts of the city to move away from state security buildings, which they said would be targeted in retaliation for the bombings.
