Beirut - At least 12 people, including children, were killed and dozens wounded on Friday when three surface-to-surface missiles struck in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo district, a watchdog said.

“At least 12 bodies have been recovered so far and there are more than 50 people wounded,” Syrian Observatory for Human Rights director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP by phone.

The Britain-based Observatory said the number of victims was likely to rise, as many people were trapped under the rubble of collapsed buildings in the eastern district of Tariq al-Bab. - Sapa-AFP
