Families remain victims of Syria bombardments

Aleppo couple and four children latest casualties of regime's indiscriminate shelling of residential areas.

    Forces loyal to Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president, have been blamed for using warplanes, tanks and mortars to indiscriminately bombard opposition-controlled areas across the country.

    The action has left many residential buildings destroyed and thousands of civilians dead. 

    In an Al Jazeera exclusive, Khadija Magardie reports on how one family, a married couple and their four children, died after their home in Aleppo was shelled as they slept. The couple's newborn child was the only survivor of the attack.
