This was what Al Bab, an area near Aleppo looked like after government air strikes. Locals join in to try and free a person trapped in their vehicle. Medics rush to a badly hit part of the city, according to this video posted to a social media website whose content Reuters cannot independently verify.

Using their bare hands, they dig through the rubble. Soon, dust covered survivors are lifted over the debris. The attacks weren't confined to Aleppo. A cloud of dust over Derra --- moments after the southwestern city was hit by a barrel bomb. It isn't clear how many were killed or injured in what appeared to be coordinated air strikes throughout the country.
