At least 22 people, including 14 children, were killed in Syrian regime airstrikes on rebel districts in Aleppo on Sunday, a human rights group reported.
"An (aerial) attack using explosive-laden barrels over the Sakhur, Ard al-Hamra and Haydariyeh districts (of eastern Aleppo) killed 22 people, among them 14 children and an 18-year-old boy," the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The Aleppo Media Center, an activist network on the ground, reported several helicopter attacks on rebel-held areas of the city, Agence France-Presse reported.
Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime uses its air force almost daily to target rebel-held areas.
More than 126,000 people have been killed in the war-torn country since March 2011, and millions more have fled their homes, AFP reported.
