Syrians blame US strikes for civilian deaths

Activists say civilians, including children, were killed in US bombardment targeting Nusra Front near Aleppo.

    There is anger in western Aleppo where Syrians are blaming the US military for the deaths of civilians. 

    Opposition activists say the US was responsible for hitting a residential building not far from a known headquarters of Syria's al-Qaeda branch, the Nusra front.

    They say 11 people, including four children, were killed - a claim Al Jazeera cannot verify.
