BEIRUT - Air strikes on rebel-held areas of Aleppo and shelling of government-held areas of the city resumed on Friday, after a brief dawn lull following seven days of violence, a war monitor, a civil defense worker and Syrian state media said.

At least one child died and five people were injured in air strikes on Friday on rebel-held areas, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The strikes come on the same day as Russian state media said a "regime of silence" agreement in Syria sponsored by Russia and the United States will apply for 24 hours in Damascus and the surrounding area and 72 hours in Latakia.

Bebars Mishal, a civil defense chief working in rebel-held areas of Aleppo told Reuters there were a number of air attacks this morning, many of them around mosques in rebel-held areas. Mishal said one hit a clinic in Aleppo's Al-Marja district.

Syrian state television said people had been wounded and a building set on fire during shelling of government-held quarters of Aleppo on Friday.
