Deadly air strikes continue across Syria

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces intensified air strikes on rebel-held areas across the country. More than 42 civilians were reportedly killed and dozens more wounded in air strikes launched by the Syrian government in al-Atareb, a city in the northern Aleppo province. 

Against this backdrop of continued fighting in Aleppo and other provinces, Stephen O'Brien, the UN humanitarian chief, called on Monday for immediate "unconditional and unhindered" humanitarian access to an estimated 5.5 million Syrians in besieged or difficult-to-reach areas. More than 280,000 people have been killed in Syria and more than half its population has been displaced since the conflict began.
