Air raids kill at least 22 in Syria’s Aleppo

BEIRUT – Syrian activists say government air raids have killed at least 22 people, including 14 children, in the northern city of Aleppo.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the aircraft dropped barrel bombs on the Haidariya and Ard al-Hamra neighborhoods on Sunday.

The anti-government group monitors the Syrian civil war through a network of activists on the ground.

The Observatory also said the number people killed in the town of Adra northeast of Damascus after an al-Qaida-linked rebel faction attacked on Wednesday has risen to 28.

Observatory director Rami Abdurrahman says the dead are primarily members of President Bashar Assad’s minority Alawite sect, as well as a few Druse and Shiite Muslims. All three sects largely support Assad in the fight against mainly Sunni rebels.
