Shelling of bus by Syrian regime kills 10 in Aleppo

Syria bus shelled  Tariq al-Bab At least 10 people, including two children, were killed in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo after a regime tank shell smashed into a bus, an NGO said on Tuesday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the shell hit a bus in the Tariq al-Bab neighborhood, adding that the toll could rise because a number of people had been seriously wounded.

The Britain-based group said a woman was also among those killed in the blast.

A video filmed by activists and uploaded by the Observatory on the sharing website YouTube shows chaotic scenes, with the back of a red public bus ablaze and spewing thick plumes of black smoke.

Round loaves of bread apparently sent flying from a street stall litter the ground along with rubble from a nearby building and glass from the windows of the bus and a minivan partially destroyed in the blast.

Groups of men carry injured passengers away, some trailing blood on the ground as they are moved.

Others lift a body that appeared to be partly burnt in the blast, missing its legs.

More than 126,000 people have been killed in Syria since the beginning of the conflict in the country in March 2011.

    • Hind Abyad

      Not shelling, two suicide truck bombs. Look’s like Hiroshima.

      • The real lebanese

        Shelling is explosives…

        • Hind Abyad

          Stop being an innocent fake, what you say is always like a drop of water in the rain.. meaning; say nothing if you know nothing. It was no shelling..
          By liying you’re an accomplice in this crime. Is that clear?

          • The real lebanese

            The tank obviously fired at the bus lol. When a tank fires, the shell explodes on contact. If you can show me how it wasn’t another SAA massacre id be happy to listen. By the way, Happy New Years. I know we have our differences but your not as bad as some other people Ive talked to on here.

            Read BBC the terrorists claimed responsability look up.
            This ongoing, two thirds of Syria hospitals have been SYSTEMaTiCaLY destroyed, by terrorists, health care is free, Syria invested state of the art equipment for treatements.

          • The real lebanese

            Its awaiting moderation. But i posted a link from BBC for you to watch.

            If by terrorists you mean the SAA. It says the SAA has been bombing hospitals, and in that specific one for 7 days.

    There was reported yesterday an incident of insurgents in Aleppo firing on a civilian bus too, with casualties involved. It is also said that they opened fire on ambulances in this case, which does not seem far-fetched considering their recent attack on a hospital.

    • 5thDrawer

      Hospital? You sure the story isn’t mixed with Tripoli?

      • bypest

        Look up al Kindi hospital in Aleppo.

    • Hind Abyad

      BiG lie, when will papers stop quoting “the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights”.
      It’s one person living alone in his home in UK in constant contact with FSA.
      Happened on 21 December..a little late in reporting..they had ample time to make
      100 fake videos, it’s always done.

      Syria hospitals were targueted by Nato-backed groups (remember Benghazi), since
      2011 Nato backed groups have systematicaly attacked more than two thirds of Syria’s
      public hospitals, and have murdered, kidnapped and injured more than 300 health
      workers. The most recent of this was Allepo’s Specialists Al Kindi Hospital, foreign
      terrorists has detonated two trucks bombs, those “rebels” were non-Syrias groups
      of AlQaeda affiliates Jabal al Nusra funded and armed by Saudi Arabia who have
      free entry in northern Syria by Turkey.

      In an Orwelian revision of events BBC 21 Dec. reported the destruction of
      Al Kindi with these headlines “Syria rebels take back strategic Hospital in Allepo”;
      the introduction claimed the massive suicide lorry bomb has managed to seize
      back strategic ruined hospital “occupied by Assad loyalists”, and according to
      an unconfirmed report, 35 rebels died in the attack”.

      Saudi family does not arm anyone without permission from Washington
      (Jewish lobby owns Washington), and NATO bases are used for training and
      staging of armed groups entering from Turkey. There have been a lot of distressed
      medicos mourning their friends who worked in Syria, arround the place some have
      set up treatement facilities in their homes to avoid attacks.
