Syrian government aircraft have dropped barrels laden with explosives on rebel areas of the northern city of Aleppo, opposition activists say.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said 22 people were killed, 14 of them children.

There has been no word from the Syrian Government.

Aleppo, Syria’s second city, is divided between rebel and government-held districts and the air force regularly targets rebel areas.

Large parts of the city, a commercial hub, have been destroyed since a rebel offensive last year.

Reports suggest a school was hit in the latest attack. The districts of Sakhur, Ard al-Hamr and Haydariyeh were hit, according to the SOHR.
