Over 100 civilians have been killed and at least 700 more have been seriously wounded in missile, mortar and artillery attacks of the terrorist groups on residential areas in Aleppo city in the last two weeks in August.

"Over half of the killed civilians are women and children," local sources said. Terrorists have been targeting Aleppo's neighborhoods, mainly al-Hamdaniyeh by gas cylinders called hell canon and hand-made missiles.

"On Wednesday, terrorists targeted a bus and a small market by hell canon, killing at least 14 and wounding over 50 civilians," they went on to say.

"Jeish al Fatah terrorists opened fire at 40 militants and their families, who tried to leave the village of al-Ansari near Aleppo and enter army-held regions to surrender themselves to the government authorities, and killed at least 40 of them," the sources said.

On Thursday, at least 14 civilians were killed and dozens more wounded by militant rocket attacks on government-held areas in the flashpoint Syrian city of Aleppo.

Most of the victims were killed in the city’s Hamdaniyeh district, and clashes are intensifying around the city’s Southern regions as both sides are preparing for a major battle for the control of the city.

The Syrian city has been divided since 2012 between government forces in the West and the militants in the East.
