Fiercest airstrikes yet on Aleppo, Syria declares offensive
Syrian government warplanes targeted civil defence centers in Aleppo today as a ceasefire was dead and effectively buried.
Footage uploaded to social media appeared to show extensive damage to the center in the al-Ansari neighborhood. Firefighter trucks and ambulances were also destroyed.
The strikes in the rebel-held area of Aleppo came hours after the Syrian army announced the start of a military operation that will also include a ground offensive.
The al-Ansari civil defence center is said to be one of the three that were targeted.
