BEIRUT -- Airstrikes on rebel-held districts of Syria's contested city of Aleppo on Wednesday, including one that struck near a hospital, killed 15 civilians and wounded many others, as fighting in the country's largest city intensified once again, opposition activists said.
The northern city has seen an uptick in violence in the last two days, with government forces pounding rebel-held eastern parts of the city with airstrikes while rebels are shelling western, government-held districts.
