At least 27 children and eight women were among the dead, the group said; it reported that 50 more people had sustained injuries in the bombardments.

Helicopters dropped barrel bombs on 12 neighborhoods in the city, where people have strongly backed rebels opposing the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

The opposition organization says it is not the first time the Syrian regime has dropped barrels filled with explosives on Aleppo neighborhoods.

The LCC said 135 people died in total in the conflict on Sunday.

The United Nations estimates that more than 100,000 people have died since the Syrian conflict began in March 2011.

Hundreds of thousands of civilians have also been injured.

It began when government forces cracked down on peaceful protesters during the Arab Spring movement, and slowly spiraled into a bloody, full-blown civil war.

More than 2.3 million people have fled Syria, and another 4.25 million Syrians have become refugees within their country since the civil war began, according to an Amnesty International report released on Friday.

I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that, it’s not as beautiful as it sounds,” she said.
