Syrian military source says army not targeting civilians in Aleppo

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian army is accurately targeting “terrorist positions and gatherings” in Aleppo, and did not target “any civilian place”, a Syrian military source told Reuters on Friday.

The source said on Thursday the army was launching a new offensive in eastern, rebel-held, Aleppo, and on Friday medics and rescue workers in the area said scores of people had been killed in a bombardment.
