Syria Girl Rescued After Airstrike

SYRIA - Video uploaded online purports to show the aftermath of airstrikes on the Syrian city of Aleppo, including a rescue attempt for a girl trapped under rubble.

Syrian emergency service workers worked to rescue the small girl, who was trapped underneath a table after an airstrike in what was claimed to be Aleppo.

Civil defense workers said the trapped girl and her mother were both rescued.

Another video said to be shot in Aleppo over the weekend showed firefighters tackling a blazing building, again said to be in the aftermath of airstrikes.

Purported rebels were also seen targeting locations said to be held by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in both Deraa and Reef Idlib.

NBC cannot independently verify the content of these videos.

Earlier this month, Syrian armed forces took strategic ground around Aleppo, according to residents and state media, squeezing the main rebel supply line into the city after months of battlefield gains by Damascus.

Syria's war has killed 160-thousand people.
