At least 11 civilians have been killed and another 25 injured as a result of the Russian airstrike on Saturday
Russia's bombing came a day after Russia had announced a humanitarian pause in attacks to allow much-needed aid into the city of Aleppo.
At least 11 civilians were killed and another 25 injured by a Russian airstrike Saturday in Syria's northwestern Aleppo province, a local civil defense official told Anadolu Agency.

The strike targeted Aleppo's western opposition-held towns of Atarib and Darat Izzah and Ibbin Village. Said Ahmed adding that the fatalities included children and women.
"Civil defense teams found a number of dead bodies and rescued people from under the rubble of collapsed buildings in Ibbin Village where Russian warplanes struck with parachute bombs", Ahmed said.
"Several structures were destroyed or damaged in the airstrikes in Atarib and Darat Izzah towns", he added.
For the past year, Russia - citing the need to combat "terrorism" and support for the embattled Assad regime - has carried out numerous airstrikes in opposition-held parts of Aleppo, which have led to the death and injury of hundreds of the city's civilian inhabitants.
