Civilians stand amid destroyed buildings in the eastern Shaar neighbourhood of the northern Syrian city of Aleppo on May 30, 2015Barrel bombs dropped from regime helicopters killed at least 71 civilians in Syria's Aleppo province Saturday, after forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad retreated from the neighbouring northwestern region of Idlib. Insurgents now control the vast majority of Idlib after Al-Nusra Front -- Al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate -- and its allies overran the last remaining regime-held city and surrounding villages. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said "at least 71 civilians were killed, and dozens were wounded, when regime helicopters dropped barrel bombs on the city of Al-Bab and in Al-Shaar in east Aleppo city".
