The death toll in the bombing of Aleppo by Syrian government planes Sunday has risen to more than 100, including 16 children, according to opposition sources.
The “barrel bomb” attack hit nine different parts of the city and was the worst bombing of the commercial hub in six months, the London Telegraph reported. The bombs were dropped by helicopters and were made of TNT with nails and other metal materials.
One opposition medical source said that doctors called the attacks a “massacre” that struck a school, a bus station and a public market. Many of the victims were women and children
