230+ Dead as Airstrikes Pound Aleppo

Dozens of airstrikes hit Aleppo overnight, said Syrian civil defense worker Bebars Mishal. “Especially at night, the bombardment intensifies, it becomes more violent, using all kinds of weapons, phosphorous and napalm and cluster bombs,” he said. “Now, there’s just the helicopter, and God only knows where it will bomb. God knows which building will collapse.” The airstrikes intensified after the short-lived ceasefire, brokered by the U.S. and Russia, ended. The Syrian army has reportedly launched a new offensive in the city. The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 237 people have died in airstrikes in Aleppo since last Monday, when the truce ended.
