Civilians bear the brunt of Syria air strikes

UN says government air and ground attacks continue to specifically target civilian gatherings across the country.

    Syrian civilians have continually been targeted by government air strikes and ground attacks across the country, according to the UN, rights groups and activists.

    The UN estimates that at least 3,000 people, including many children, have been killed by barrel bombs dropped by warplanes in Aleppo since last December alone.
