Syrian Coalition Condemns Targeting of Civilians

Multiple sources in Aleppo reported earlier today many casualties and injuries among civilians as a result of shelling carried out by armed groups in the area surrounding positions of the YPG militias in Aleppo city.

The Coalition reaffirmed its condemnation of any attacks on civilians, stressing that all sides have a responsibility to protect civilians. It also called on all military groups in Syria to demonstrate commitment to international law and avoid following in the footsteps of the Assad regime in deliberately and systematically targeting civilians across Syria.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights earlier today published a video showing unidentified military groups shelling the neighborhood of Sheikh Maksoud in Aleppo. The shelling left at least ten people killed and dozens more wounded, according to the Observatory. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
