ALEPPO, Syria (AA) – A total of seven people were killed and another 30 injured on Saturday in airstrikes carried out by the Syrian regime in opposition-held areas of the northwestern Aleppo province.

Civil defense officials in Aleppo told Anadolu Agency that regime warplanes had struck the province’s opposition-held Bab al-Nayrab and Bustan al-Qasr areas.

Rescue workers, they added, were now in the process of searching for survivors buried under the rubble of destroyed buildings.

Several structures in Bustan al-Qasr were reportedly leveled by Saturday’s airstrikes.

For the past 10 days, Syria’s Assad regime — with Russian support — has been carrying out airstrikes in opposition-held areas of Aleppo that have targeted civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, mosques and markets.
