A Russian airstrike on Syrian city Aleppo killed about 23 civilians on Saturday, a civil defense source said.

The jets targeted the opposition-controlled neighborhood of al-Sakhour, wounding scores more.

Meanwhile, civil defense volunteers ferried the casualties to nearby field hospitals.

Syria has been locked in a vicious civil war since early 2011, when the Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests.
