The plight of civilians in western Aleppo, often were targeted by rebels. Five children were killed in the govt-controlled part of the city, but the attack didn’t get much notice from rights groups or the US.

A school and adjacent bus stop were hit by mortar shells in the Al-Suleymaniya neighborhood of Aleppo. Two children died on the spot and three others later in the hospital.

Their teacher has regretted: «They were just schoolchildren, my pupils».

The US has long promised to separate the rebels from terrorists. An Al-Nusra commander has revealed in a recent interview how the group had been receiving outside support, including American weapons.

A number of US-backed groups are also believed to work side by side with the Al-Qaeda affiliate.
Moscow has repeatedly insisted that any peace plan for Syria, in particular for Aleppo, will not bear fruit until the US-backed rebels clearly distance themselves from Al-Nusra.

Moreover, Russia is not convinced that the US is seriously fighting militants from the Al-Nusra terrorist group in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said last week, adding that though American fighter jets had made a lot of flights, they had not hit many targets.
