Air raids on rebel-held towns across Syria killed 26 people Monday, activists said, two days after the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution demanding an end to indiscriminate shelling and aerial attacks.Two women and 10 children were among the dead in government air raids on the town of Neshabia, in the eastern outskirts of Damascus, near a railway marking the front line between Islamist fighters and Assad's forces backed by Hezbollah, and in the province of Homs to the north.The Syrian Revolution General Commission, a grass-roots opposition group, said six people were killed in the attack on Al-Hosn.In Aleppo, government troops battled rebels over a strategic district that could be key to securing a nearby prison and laying siege to the city's rebel-held east.The Observatory said that three groups – the Islamic Front alliance of seven militias, the Nusra Front, and the Mujahedeen Army – declared a general call-up to confront the regime's campaign.Rebels carried out another suicide bombing at the prison Thursday, killing at least eight soldiers.
