Syrian, Russian war jets step up bombing of Aleppo city

AMMAN - Nearly 40 strikes hit rebel-held areas in and around Syria's Aleppo city on Sunday in some of the heaviest recent raids by Russian and Syrian government war-planes, residents and a monitor said.
Rebels also hit government-held parts of the city in what Syrian media said was an escalation in mortar attacks on the western parts of the country's largest city before the war.
State media said missiles fired on Hamadaniyah and the Midan areas by insurgents left scores injured and several casualties in a second day of intense shelling of government held areas which left at least 24 dead on Saturday
