Reports of airstrikes on rebel-held areas of Aleppo

A truce in Syria is reported holding. But new accounts are emerging of air strikes in northwestern Syria, especially in the Aleppo area.

Video posted on the internet purports to show the aftermath of one these bombings. But, observers say it’s not clear if these areas are covered by the ceasefire, and they couldn’t identify the warplanes.

The U.S.-led coalition continues its air strikes, as well, focused on the Raqqa area. The ceasefire excludes ISIL and Al-Nusra.

CCTV’s Jack Parrock reports officials in Moscow are saying they’re only targeting rebels linked to terrorism.
