Militant shelling kills 28 civilians in Syria’s Aleppo

Illegal armed units continue to shell the Syrian city of Aleppo, where 28 civilians were killed in the past three days, the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides in Syria said in a statement, adding that another 56 civilians had suffered wounds.

According to the center, attacks keep coming from areas in the Idlib province that are still controlled by militants.

"As many as 18 people were brought here and three of them died because they had suffered fatal wounds. Some underwent surgery and others received outpatient care," the head of the surgical department at a local hospital told reporters.
