Syrian Airstrike Kills 33

Syrian opposition activists say government aircraft struck a busy market in the rebel-controlled district of Aleppo, killing at least 33 people.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Thursday's attack occurred in the Hillok area.

The attack comes a day after a strike on an Aleppo school left 18 dead, many of them children.

Aleppo has been divided between government forces and rebels, with forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad carrying out frequent airstrikes and dropping crude barrel bombs in rebel-held areas.
