At least 45 civilians have been killed in airstrikes mounted by Syrian and Russian warplanes on areas in and near city of Aleppo in Syria.

The ongoing attacks were aimed towards areas controlled by the Army of Conquest which is an aligned to rebel Islamist and jihadist forces that have mounted a major offensive to seize Aleppo.

Rebel fighters seized control there earlier this month in what was a major setback for forces loyal to President Bashar al Assad.

Nine other civilians have been killed over the past two days in rebel shelling of western Aleppo, which is controlled by the Syrian government.
