Aleppo Again!! At least 42 dead in air attack on the mosque at Aleppo

Damascus – In an air attack on a mosque near the city of Aleppo in northern Syria, activists have been killed at least 42 people.

Most of the victims are civilians, the Syrian Human Rights Observatory said in the evening. Dozens of people have been injured. Many of them were still under the rubble of the building. Activists still spoke of an even greater number of death sacrifices.

A mosque was therefore held in the rebel-controlled village of Al-Jeninnah, west of Aleppo, where believers had gathered for the evening prayer. Activists reported that there were about 300 people in the mosque. Pictures showed bodies on the floor of the building. In the region, numerous expellees have fled, who fled last year from the fiercely fought Aleppo.

It was unclear who was responsible for the attack. In the region, regular jets of the Syrian and Russian air force attacks. They fight there armed opponents of the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The US-led international coalition also attacks extremist groups in Syria.

These include the al-Qaeda-near militia Tahrir al-Sham Front (former Al-Nusra Front), which has positions in the north and north-west of Syria. Since the beginning of the year, dozens of leaders of the group have been killed in air raids.

In the civil war country of Syria, there has actually been a truce since the end of December. Nevertheless, there are always air raids against rebels. In addition to the Tahrir-al-Sham front, the Terrormiliz Islamic State (IS) is also excluded from the armory.

The opposition had not made any new negotiations this week on strengthening the arms rest in the Kazakhstan capital Astana. It protested against violations of the fire plague, which they accuse the government and its allies of Russia.

It was only on Wednesday that 26 people were killed in an air raid in the town of Idlib, controlled by rebels, in the north-west of Syria, including 14 children. The human rights observers assumed that Russian aircraft were responsible for this.

The Syrian conflict had lasted for the sixth time this week. He broke out in March 2011 with protests against the authoritarian government. In the Civil War at least 400,000 people have been killed.
