    Illegal armed units shelled on Monday a residential district in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo leaving three people killed and four injured, a source in local militia said.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) – Three people have been killed and four others injured, as the attack unfolded in the Salaheddine district.

    “The shelling was carried out in the afternoon. The attack was directed against the Salaheddine district; in northern part of the district one of the humanitarian corridors is organized. At the moment we have 3 people killed and four injured,” the source told RIA Novosti.

    Syria's civil war between government forces and a wide range of insurgents, including opposition groups and terrorists, such as Islamic State and Jabhat Fatah al Sham, both outlawed in Russia, has raged for some five years and has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.

    Over recent months, Aleppo has been a battlefield between government forces, jihadists, and numerous opposition groups. Militant-held eastern Aleppo is encircled by government forces and the fighting has affected thousands of civilians still trapped in the city.
