In a recent attack on the Syrian city of Aleppo, more than two dozen people, many of them children, were killed in a bombardment.

This is added on to the strike late Monday where 31 civilians were also murdered (14 of them being children) with a claim from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based pro-opposition group that the attack may have been surface to surface missiles.  

From the L.A. Times:

“Rebels have been battling the Syrian military for control of the city since July, with neither side making much headway. The city has experienced aerial bombardment, shelling, car bombs, street firefights and persistent sniper fire… The military has maintained tight control of the capital, and last summer pushed out rebels from several districts in fierce fighting. But insurgents continue to launch attacks from strongholds in the capital’s  suburbs and surrounding rural areas.”

The Syrian government has yet to respond.
