At least three children were killed and 14 injured in a militant rocket attack on a school in the government-held west of Aleppo city.
“Three children were killed and 14 students were injured in a terrorist rocket attack on the national school in the Shahba neighborhood of Aleppo,” state news agency SANA reported.
The neighborhood is in the western outskirts of the city, which has been roughly divided since mid-2012, when militants seized its eastern half. The Takfiri terrorists regularly fire crude homemade rockets into the west of the city, killing civilians.
Aleppo, Syria’s second largest city, has been divided between government forces in the west and the militants in the east since 2012. In an attempt to free the trapped civilian population and to end the militants’ reign of terror in the east, the Syrian army, backed by Russian fighter jets, began a major offensive on September 22.
