Air attacks continued Friday (29/4) in the second city of Syria, Aleppo, where the clinic was hit by one day after the attack destroyed a hospital, according to civil defense officials.
Clinic, which has provided treatment for chronic diseases and dental services for about five years, was badly damaged. A nurse was among several injured.
State media reported that rebels had shelled Aleppo mosque in Bab al-Faraj neighborhood, killing at least 15 people and wounding 30 others.
“The planes do not sleep and did not let us sleep,” said one resident told AFP news agency. “The earth shook under our feet.”
Friday prayers at mosques discontinued town in rebel-held areas for fear of further violence.
Thursday (28/4) was the most deadly in Aleppo since the violence erupted last week, when the human rights organization Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 54 people were killed.
At least 200 civilians were killed in Aleppo this week when the rebels fired at the government-controlled area with rockets and artillery while the regime continued to launch air strikes on rebel areas.
Head of the UN Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein declared Friday (29/4) that the renewed violence in Syria this week showed the terrible indifference to the lives of civilians by all belligerents.
