The divided Syrian city of Aleppo has seen a morning of air attacks, with reports of barrel bombs hitting a hospital already bombed this week.

The Russian and Syrian air forces have been attacking the rebel-held east of the city, causing international outrage at the mounting civilian death toll.

Government forces began a ground offensive against the rebels more than a week ago as a truce collapsed.

The US says Russia is driving moderate rebels into the arms of jihadists.

Once Syria’s commercial and industrial hub, Aleppo has been divided roughly in two since 2012.
