Syrian airstrikes against rebel-held suburbs of the capital city of Damascus and rebel villages in northern Aleppo have left at least 32 people dead and 40 others wounded.
The exact split of civilians to combatants is ever elusive, particularly in the territory of rebel factions, but most indications are that the majority were civilians and medical personnel.
The largest number were killed in the northern town of Dayr Hafir, where at least 21, and according to some accounts 23, were killed by the strikes, which hit a hospital. The toll is expected to rise.
A strike in the Damascus suburb of Douma killed two women, while seven unidentified people were reported slain in a strike on another village near Aleppo.
