"Syrian regime forces pounded eastern Aleppo Sunday with airstrikes for a sixth day straight, bringing the death toll to around 300 in the most intense bombing since the war began five years ago, rescuers say. The Syrian regime resumed heavy bombardment over eastern Aleppo on Tuesday after a three-week lull, killing at least 289 people by Saturday, according to the Syrian Civil Defense, also known as White Helmets, who said the past six days marked the most forceful bombardment they had seen. ... on Sunday, the bloodshed continued -- four children and their parents were killed in a suspected chemical attack as a barrage of barrel bombs struck their neighborhood, al-Sakhour, according to the UK-based monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Aleppo Media Center activist group."
