Rockets fired by Jihadists have killed 11 people in Aleppo.

The Syrian city is under the control of President Bashar al-Assad's regime, but that means it has been intermittently targeted by rebel fighters.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, said the rockets were fired by jihadist group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.

They reported, along with the state news, that over 20 rockets were fired into Aleppo, killing civilians, including a child, and security personnel.

In 2011, opposition fighters and jihadists overran large parts of Syria.

But since Russia intervened on Assad's side in 2015, the regime has notched up a series of victories against them.

However, the Idlib province is still believed to be a rebel area.

Since September, these areas have been subject to a Russian-Turkish agreement providing for the creation of a "demilitarised zone".

Despite the initiative, the terms have not been respected.

The regime has continued to bomb Idlib and Jihadists have launched attacks against government-held positions.

It is thought that the conflict, that began eight years ago, has claimed more than 370,000 lives.
