Activists say missile kills 10 in northern Syrian city

BEIRUT: Activists say a missile attack on a rebel-held neighborhood in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo has killed at least 10 people and wounded many others.

The Local Coordination Committees said Tuesday's attack on the Maghayer neighborhood killed 10 people, including women and children.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the attack killed 18 people and wounded more than 50. It said the surface-to-surface missile destroyed several houses in the area.

It is not uncommon to have different death tolls in the aftermath of attacks in Syria, where the four-year conflict has killed more than 220,000 people.

Aleppo, Syria's largest city and once its commercial center, has been contested since July 2012.
