Separately on Thursday, 20 people were either wounded or killed when the rebels fired mortar shells into government-controlled areas in the country’s northern city of Aleppo, the Observatory said.

Almost a quarter of a million people, including nearly 12,000 children, have been killed in Syria’s conflict since it broke out in March 2011. Enditem
