Rebel fire on a hospital in a government-controlled neighbourhood of Syria’s second city Aleppo killed three women and wounded another 17 people today, state media reported.

The rockets hit Al-Dabbeet hospital in the Muhafaza district, state news agency SANA said. Rebel rocket fire on other government-held neighbourhoods killed another 11 people, it added.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said rebels had fired rockets and shells on government-controlled western districts of the city throughout the day.

After a lull through the morning, regime air strikes on rebel-held eastern areas resumed in the afternoon, an AFP correspondent reported.

Moscow has faced mounting pressure from Washington to rein in air raids by its Damascus ally after a hospital and three clinics were hit.

The northern metropolis has been hit by a wave of violence that has killed more than 250 civilians since April 22, sparking a diplomatic push by Russia and the United States to end the carnage and restore a teetering truce.
