Building was transformed into a military base by President Bashar al-Assad's forces earlier this year.

    A human rights group is accusing the Syrian government of killing hundreds of civilians in Aleppo.

    Bashar al-Assad's forces launched an aerial campaign against opposition-held areas there last week.

    But rebels are fighting back, capturing a hospital used as a base by Assad's troops.
