    Eight people were killed and over 80 hospitalized after shelling carried out by terrorists in the Syrian city of Aleppo, local medics said Monday.

    BEIRUT (Sputnik) — At least eight people were killed and over 80 hospitalized in the terrorists' shelling of Aleppo on Monday. 

    "According to initial information, eight people were killed and 80 sustained injuries. The number of victims may significantly increase, many sustained serious injuries and shelling continues," a healthcare worker told RIA Novosti.

    In recent weeks, the situation in Aleppo and surrounding areas has deteriorated, as various militant groups, including the Nusra Front, which is outlawed in Russia and many other countries, have been shelling the city.
