At least two children were killed in the late hours of July 24 in an new rocket attack on Aleppo’s city center in northern Syria.
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said that ten other civilians, half of them children, were wounded in the attack, which targeted the district of Hamadaniyeh.
There was no immediate claim for the attack. However, Hay’at Tharir al-Sham (HTS) and its key ally, the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL), remain the main suspects.
Two days ago, a similar rocket attack on Aleppo’s city center claimed the lives of five civilians and injured many others.
Pro-government sources said that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) responded to the rocket attack by shelling militants’ positions in the district of al-Rashideen in northwestern Aleppo. The SAA may carry out more strikes in the upcoming hours.
