 At least 23 civilians were killed, and scores of other non-combatants were injured in Aleppo in six separate regime airstrikes on Thursday, a Syrian opposition group said.

According to the Syrian Revolution General Commission, combat aircraft belonging to Syrian regime forces pounded Bab town in Aleppo, a target controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Women and children were reportedly among the victims, and several buildings were damaged.

Street protests, ruthlessly repressed by the Assad regime, turned into a bloody civil war which has claimed the lives of more than 150,000 people so far.

The unrest has led to a civil war fought by a fragmented opposition.

It also paved the way for ISIL to gain a foothold in the region.
