Most of the casualties were women and children, according to the Syria Civil Defence’s volunteers. The shelling also caused a huge destruction in the buildings of the opposition-held neighbourhood.
Dozens of people were killed and injured in al-Rashideen neighbourhood as well.

The road was blocked because of the heavy firepower used. The shelling killed many civilians and injured dozens, according to activists.

At the northern gate of the Aleppo, tens of thermobaric missiles targeted Handarat camp, destroying it almost completely.
