On Friday, 6 civilians were reportedly killed and another 22 were hospitalized in Aleppo after militants from the Islamic Front (Jabhat Al-Islamiyya) fired a barrage of rockets into a number of neighborhoods inside the city.

Among the dead civilians were 3 children, who were found under the rubble of a building that was struck by a rocket on Tishreen St. in the Bani Zayd Quarter. The autopsy revealed that the 3 children – aged 6, 9, and 14 – died of asphyxiation while being trapped with no outlet to escape.

3 other civilians were found dead after a missile hit a residential building in the Salahedeen Quarter in west Aleppo.

The civilians were identified as the following:

  • ‘Alaa Mahmoud Qataan (9 years old)
  • ‘Aytha Mahmoud Qataan (14 years old)
  • Ibrahim Mahmoud Qataan (6 years old)
  • ‘Umar Ahmad ‘Azizeh (29 years old)
  • Shayma Na’amiyeh (15 years old)
  • Miyadeh Al-Mazour (48 years old)

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
