Aleppo residents tell of onslaught as airstrikes enter second day
‘Anger has filled everyone who remains in this city of rubble … God curse humanity if this is what it has become,’ says nurse
Residents of rebel-held east Aleppo have described scenes of devastation after one of the heaviest and most sustained nights of bombardment the city has experienced. Activists said that Syrian and Russian warplanes attacked the city hours after the announcement of a major new offensive dashed any hopes of restoring a US-Russian ceasefire.
At least 91 deaths were recorded in the province on Friday, but activists said the figure was probably an underestimate because many bodies remained buried in rubble.
