Heavy Syrian Army Shelling Hits Rebel Aleppo: Monitor

BEIRUT (AFP) – Syrian government artillery bombarded the fast-shrinking rebel enclave in the heart of Aleppo on Friday despite its ally Russia’s announcement of a new humanitarian pause, a monitor said.

Air strikes halted on Thursday evening following Moscow’s announcement but shelling continued throughout the night and into the morning, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

An AFP correspondent in the rebel-held enclave reported hearing the boom of artillery through the night.
