Rebel rockets kill 19 in Aleppo, hit hospital: monitor

BEIRUT Rebels bombarded government-held areas of Aleppo with rockets on Tuesday, killing 19 people and hitting a hospital, while also launching a ground assault on army-held positions of the divided city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
