Syrian President Bassar al-Assad’s Air Force dropped “barrel bombs” of explosives on Aleppo Sunday, killing 14 children and eight others, according to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. A school was hit by the bombs, the Observatory said, and another activist group reported that there were several helicopter attacks.
The city, Syria’s second largest, is divided between rebel and government-held areas after the opposition had taken control of most of the city last year.
Attempts for a diplomatic solution to the conflict are doubted by most observers, and the opposition has said there can be no solution without the removal of Assad.
