AMMAN - Bombs dropped by suspected Russian warplanes killed at least 12 Syrian schoolchildren on Monday when they hit a classroom in a rebel-held town in Aleppo province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
The air strike hit the town of Injara some 15 km (9 miles) west of Aleppo city. A teacher also died and there were reports of others wounded, some critically, the monitor said.
Social media footage released by opposition activists showed a classroom with destroyed benches and textbooks lying on the floor stained with blood. The footage could not be independently verified.
There was no immediate from the Russian defense ministry.
