Two hospitals bombed in rebel-held Aleppo amid government assault

Two patients were killed and three hospital staffers injured in the pre-dawn attacks, including a nurse and an ambulance driver, according to the Syrian American Medical Society, which runs hospitals in opposition controlled areas of Syria.
