Syrian state news agency says eight people killed by rebel shelling in government-held Aleppo

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian state news agency SANA said on Wednesday that eight people, including two children, were killed by rebel shelling of government-held districts of western Aleppo.

The shells hit the Aadhamiyeh, New Aleppo, and Furqan areas, wounding seven people, SANA reported, quoting a source in the Aleppo police.

Aleppo has for years been divided between the government-held west and rebel-held east.
