Also in Aleppo, government air strikes on rebel-held areas left two civilians dead and several others injured, the observatory reported.

At least eight have been killed and several others have been injured after government helicopters dropped a barrel bomb on a residential building in the old city of Aleppo.

Meanwhile, at least 20 rebels were killed in clashes against ISIL in Um al-Qura village located in northern Aleppo suburbs, activists told the observatory.
