An airstrike hit a hospital in the Syrian city of Aleppo, killing 20 people in a rebel-held neighborhood, a local official said, according to CNN.
Fatalities in the hospital attack Wednesday included three doctors, two hospital guards and an ambulance driver, according to civil defense worker Bebars Meshaal.
Civilians standing at the hospital gate were also killed, the official said.
Al Quds hospital is in a rebel-held neighborhood in Aleppo, according to the Syria Civil Defense. It was hit by a missile from a fighter jet, witnesses said, but it's unclear whom the jet belonged to.
In recent months, northern Syria has been the scene of intense fighting, with government forces backed by Russian air power pursuing a major offensive on Aleppo.
