At least eight children were killed Sunday in Syria when rockets struck a school in Aleppo, in a sixth straight day of airstrikes that included a barrel bomb that killed a family of six, Reuters reported. A teacher was among the dead, the Associated Press reported. The shelling killed at least seven children among 10 deaths in the Saria Hasoun School,

bringing the death toll to about 300 since Tuesday, the start of one of the heaviest bombardments in the country’s six-year civil war. Medics cited by Reuters said the al-Baytounji family had suffocated to death because of the barrel bomb, which fell at about midnight and reportedly was laced with chlorine gas. FULL REPORT
