Syrian civil war: Hospital in regime-controlled Aleppo partly destroyed by rebel shelling as more civilians killed | Middle East | News | The Independent

Rebel areas of Aleppo are almost surrounded by the Syrian regime, leaving only one major road in and out, raising fears that Assad’s forces are preparing to cut it off for a final assault.
At least 19 civilians have been killed at a hospital and other parts of government-controlled Aleppo in shelling attributed to Islamist rebels. Al-Dabit Hospital, which lies less than a kilometre from territory held by opposition groups, was partly destroyed on Tuesday, with footage showing its frontage collapsed and overturned cars burning in the street outside. Ikhbariya, a state-run Syrian news channel, said three women were killed and 17 wounded but other reports but the death toll as high as 24.
