The United States on Saturday condemned "in the strongest possible terms" the series of rocket attacks against Aleppo, specifically referencing the Scud missiles attack on Friday that killed several dozen people.

Also mentioning an assault on Aleppo on Tuesday, US State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland said in a press release: "These attacks, as well as other atrocities such as the strike against a field hospital earlier in the week, are only the latest demonstrations of the Syrian regime's ruthlessness and its lack of compassion for the Syrian people it claims to represent."
