In Syria , at least 15 people are reported to have been killed and dozens wounded in a series of airstrikes on rebel-held areas in the Aleppo city.

Activists and a monitoring group said that one of the strikes hit a makeshift hospital in the eastern Shaar district.

But government forces are seeking to regain control of the divided city.

Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad promised to retake every inch of the country from his opponents.

Syrian rebels ousted the Islamic State group from two villages near the Turkish border today, re-opening a key supply route for opposition forces in northern Aleppo.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group, IS had captured several villages between the rebel-held northern towns of Marea and Azaz on May 27, cutting off rebel forces from their supply line with Turkey.
