Syria's death toll rises as regime barrel bombs Aleppo
As the regime barrel bombed Aleppo on Wednesday, Syrian security forces killed at least 83 people, including eight children and three women, in attacks across the country Tuesday, a human rights group said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in London, said the government forces killed 13 people in the Damascus suburbs, 37 people in Aleppo, 17 in Homs, eight in Hama, four in Daraa and two in both Idlib and Quneitra.
The Syrian Revolution General Commission, another activist group, posted a video online that shows a child being pulled from wreckage after Syrian forces bombed a home in Aleppo.
More than 100,000 people have been killed in the three-year conflict, the Andalou Agency reported, and more than 2 million have fled the country.
The UN is waiting for approval from the warring parties before delivering the supplies, the U.N. News Center said.
The talks will go on until at least Friday.
"I will repeat again that these are not easy negotiations and they haven't been easy today, they haven't been ... these past days and they will probably not be easy in the coming few days," U.N. Arab League Special Representative Lakhdar Brahimi said.
