Air Raids on Syria's Aleppo as End of Cease-fire Nears

Monday, 09 May 2016 09:58 AM EDT

BEIRUT (AP) — Two opposition monitoring groups are reporting multiple air raids on a rebel-held area and shelling of government-controlled parts of the northern city of Aleppo hours before a five-day cease-fire was to expire.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committee say the airstrikes Monday hit several areas in Aleppo, including the neighborhood of Rashideen.

Monday's airstrikes came a day after opposition fighters shelled the government-held neighborhood of Midan, killing a child, state media and activists said.

The violence came hours before a five-day cease-fire was to expire after just midnight.

Russia and the U.S. last week reached an agreement to extend Syria's cease-fire to Aleppo, which had seen several days of heavy fighting that killed 286 civilians, including 57 children, according to the Observatory.
