The nationality of the warplane that launched the strike remained unclear. Both the Syrian government and its ally Russia have conducted airstrikes on rebel-held areas in recent days.

“For nearly a week there have been an average of 15 strikes a day in Aleppo,” Osama Teljo, a member of the opposition’s Aleppo city council, said in an interview via social media.

A military source quoted by Syrian state media insisted “there was no truth” to accusations that the Syrian air force had targeted the hospital, and said that rebel shelling of government-controlled neighborhoods of the city on Thursday had killed and wounded dozens.

Russia’s Ministry of Defense also denied didn’t deny responsibility for the strike, saying that its planes had not conducted any sorties over Aleppo in the last few days.
