Rebel fire on west Aleppo kills 7 children

At least seven children were killed on Sunday by rebel rocket fire that hit a school in the government-held west of Aleppo city, state media said.

State television initially gave a toll of 10 killed, but the official SANA news agency subsequently said eight people had been killed, seven children and a woman. 

The rocket fire hit a school in the Furqan neighbourhood, and also injured at least 32 people, SANA said, citing a police source. The news agency reported additional rebel fire on other parts of west Aleppo. 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor of the war, says at least 103 civilians have been killed in east Aleppo since the latest government assault began.
