Barrel bombs ‘hit taxi stand’ in Syria’s Aleppo

Syrian helicopters dropped barrel bombs on a taxi stand in the city of Aleppo on Friday, killing at least 12 civilians, including a child, a monitoring group said.

‘Twelve civilians, among them a child, were killed, and five others seriously wounded after helicopters launched two explosive-laden barrels against the Haidariyeh district,’ the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. An AFP journalist at the scene saw at least a dozen bloodied corpses lying on the ground.

One, wrapped in a shroud, was apparently that of a child. The journalist also saw several people on stretchers, showing burns and shrapnel wounds, and others lying in pools of blood near sandbags. It was not clear whether they were dead.
