The Russian and Syrian air forces halted strikes in Aleppo, for a 48 hour humanitarian pause.

The ceasefire comes ahead of schedule.

Video posted to a social media website on Sunday, October 17 was said to show the aftermath of Syrian military air strikes on parts of Aleppo, Hama and Idlib.

A video showed Syrian Civil Defence members attempting to clear rubble around a destroyed building where at least 14 members of one family were killed in an air strike in rebel held eastern Aleppo.

A list of those killed in the city, published by the Civil Defence, included several infants, among them were two six week old babies and six other children aged eight or below.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Monitoring Group reported, separate air strikes on the village of Awaijel west of Aleppo killed at least 23 people and the toll was expected to rise.

A Syrian military source said, the army had targeted terrorists in three areas of Aleppo on Monday (17/10/2016), killing seven of them.

The Monitoring Group also said it had recorded the deaths of 82 people including 17 children in government-held areas of western Aleppo as a result of rebel shelling.
