    At least 10 people were killed and over 50 others wounded as militants shelled two neighborhoods of Syria's Aleppo during Friday's prayers, Al-Watan newspaper reported.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — The report said the Syrian army struck back on the area where the militant fire had been delivered from.

    Over the recent months, Aleppo has been a major battleground in Syria, engaging government forces, jihadists, and numerous opposition groups. Eastern Aleppo is currently encircled by government forces, and the fighting has affected thousands of civilians still trapped in the city.

    Internationally-mediated ceasefires have collapsed as militants continued attacks and opposition failed to expel terrorists from the city.
