AMMAN - More than 23 civilians were killed by heavy insurgent shelling on government-controlled areas of the Syrian city of Aleppo, including near a mosque where children were taking religious lessons, state television said on Monday.

It said heavy shelling from Aleppo districts under the control of opposition fighters hit several districts in the Jamae al Raham Mosque area, al Ashrafia, Ramousa and several other residential areas in state-controlled parts of the city.

At least 100 civilians needed hospital treatment, it said. It was not immediately clear whether any of the children were among the dead.
