The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the death toll
from the attacks by the Islamist rebels included nine children.
Another 13 people were killed overnight when President Bashar
al-Assad's forces dropped four barrel bombs - crude explosives
which cause widespread damage - from helicopters into rebel-held
districts of the city, the UK-based Observatory said.
Fighting in Aleppo, which was Syria's commercial hub before the
three-year conflict erupted, has escalated in recent weeks after
Assad's forces consolidated their control in central Syria and
the last rebels retreated from the center of the city of Homs.
