Airstrikes by the US-led coalition purportedly targeting the radical terrorist group of IS in Syria have killed nine civilians in a countryside in the northwestern city of Aleppo.

The fatalities were caused on Sunday in the east of the town of Mare’, located some 25 kilometers north of Aleppo, Syria’s War Media reported.

The outlet, meanwhile, reported that the Syrian army had wrested control of al-Kandi Hospital in the south of the Handarat refugee camp — also located in Aleppo’s northern suburbs — from foreign-backed terrorists, killing an unspecified number of them in the process.

According to the report, the army has also engaged armed militants in southern Aleppo by carrying out mortar and rocket offensives against them.
