BEIRUT---A Syrian fighter jet struck a school
with a missile in the northern city of Aleppo
yesterday as teachers and students were prepar-
ing an exhibit of children s drawings depicting
their country at war, killing at least 19 people,
including ten children, activists said.
Bulldozers removed rubble from the smashed
building, with children s drawings and paintings
scattered in the debris, according to activist videos
of the government airstrike on a school in the
opposition-held eastern part of the city. One of
the drawings showed a hanging skeleton sur-
rounded by skulls with a child nearby being shot
by a gunman in a ditch. The child has a speech
bubble written above her head in broken English
that partly reads: "Syria will still free."
In another video by opposition activists, the
bodies of ten children wrapped in brown and
blue sheets are seen on the floor of a hospital
ward while a woman screams in the background.
The videos appeared genuine and corresponded
to Associated Press reporting of the events.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for
Human Rights, which covers the conflict through
a network of activists on the ground, said at least
19 people were killed in the strike, including ten
children. The local Aleppo Media Center put the
toll at 25 killed, most of them children.
The United Nations Children s Fund said in a
statement it was "outraged by the latest wave of
indiscriminate attacks perpetrated against schools
and other civilian targets across Syria."
Thousands of Syrian children have been killed
in Syria s three-year-old conflict, which began
as an uprising against Assad s rule, but has become
a civil war that has killed more than 150,000
people and displaced millions.
Parts of the two-story Ein Jalout school
appeared to have been completely smashed,
according to the videos, which showed blood
splatters, twisted metal and children s items, like
a little red heart-shaped box. A man speaking in
one of the videos said the exhibition was for
drawings by children from schools around the
An opposition activist from Aleppo now based
in Berlin provided the AP with a copy of the invi-
tation to the exhibition to confirm it was taking
place. Mohammed Neser, the activist, said he
feared that his colleagues who organised the show
were now dead.
"I haven t been able to get in touch with them,"
Aleppo, Syria s largest city, has been divided
between government forces and rebels for nearly
two years, with constant fighting doing little to
change the balance on the ground. Forces loyal
to Syrian President Bashar Assad have been car-
rying out airstrikes and dropping crude barrel
bombs in rebel-held districts in the eastern part
of the city, at times hitting schools, mosques and

Mortar fire also killed three people near the
Central Prison complex in Damascus, state news
agency SANA said. A day earlier, a mortar strike
in Damascus and a double car bombing in the
central city of Homs killed at least 54 people.
In a statement yesterday, UN Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon condemned those attacks, calling
them "horrendous acts of terror against innocent
