    Overnight shelling of a market in the Syrian city of Aleppo left at least 20 people injured, some of them seriously, local media reported Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Syria's state broadcaster the shell fell after midnight on a market in Al-Furqan district of Aleppo injuring 20 people, with some of them in critical condition.

    The shell reportedly was launched from Aleppo's western suburbs, where militants are located.
