Strikes on taxi stand kill 12

6 Sep, 2014

Syrian air force helicopters are reported to drop barrel bombs on a taxi stand in the city of Aleppo, killing at least 12 civilians including a child. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:

Twelve civilians, among them a child, were killed, and five others seriously wounded after helicopters launched two explosive-laden barrels against the Haidariyeh district.

A resident of the area:

I saw the bodies. They were workers, people who were simply trying to find a way to put bread on the table… You can see the human remains.

A man who had volunteered to help rescue survivors:

Taxi drivers gather here to transport workers and goods… There were no rebels here.
