Syrian children 'torn apart' by barrel bomb
« on: August 09, 2014, 10:58:53 PM »
At least 13 people were kiled and 17 wounded after a Syrian government helicopter dropped a barrel bomb on a rebel-held area in the city of Aleppo, residents and a monitoring group have claimed.

Residents found children "torn apart" following the barrel bomb attack, AFP news agency reported on Saturday. The attack took place in Maadi in northeastern Aleppo, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

In another part of the city, three children died and a dozen people were wounded after rebel rockets struck a regime-held district, the Observatory said.

The monitoring group said the Maadi deaths happened when the regime aircraft "dumped a barrel bomb of explosives on a building" early in the morning.

The death toll could rise because of the number of seriously injured people, it said.

The Observatory reported the death of only one child, but the local resident said at least four were killed.

An AFP journalist on the scene saw a building with its roof caved in and other major damage.

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.

So, the Syrian Government is still fighting the Rebels in Aleppo - but there are other parts of Syria that have been taken over by ISIL?
