Extremist militants in the Syrian city of Aleppo are shelling not only residential houses, but also mosques, people from the Bani Zeid neighborhood told journalists.

ALEPPO (Sputnik) – In the past twenty four hours, about 50 shellings have been registered in the city and several civilians were wounded.

"Terrorists have destroyed the homes of my neighbors, killing many people. They are not Muslims," Sheikh Mohammed Aboud told journalists.

The Bani Zeid neighborhood of Aleppo was liberated from militants several months ago, but it remains a volatile area as extremists consider it key for securing their positions in the eastern part of the city and are doing everything possible to prevent local residents from returning to the liberated areas.

The Syrian Army launched an offensive in the city of Aleppo after declaring an end to the ceasefire last week following the US airstrike on a Syrian Army position on September 17 that killed some 60 people.

The United States has condemned the renewed violence and blamed Russia and the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad for the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in Aleppo.

Syrian officials have stressed that the military offensive in Aleppo is aimed at liberating the city from terrorist presence.
