At least 18 people were killed in Aleppo on Monday (September 21) in Syrian government rocket strikes on two rebel-held residential neighbourhoods, according to monitoring group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: Bustan Al Qasr and Al-Shaar.

Reports suggest many of the people killed were shopping for groceries when the rockets slammed into a market.

Syria’s four-year old civil war has reduced much of Aleppo to rubble.

Tens of thousands of Syrian refugees on the road to Europe have fled chaotic scenes in their neighbourhoods.

Monitoring organisations say Syrian President Bashaar Al-Assad’s government has killed far more people in Syria than fighters from so-called Islamic State (ISIL).
