At least 51 people were killed in violence in Syria Friday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, on the last day of a 72-hour cessation of hostilities announced by the Syrian army.In a regime-held district of Aleppo, 25 civilians, including four children, were killed and 120 others wounded in rebel shelling, the activist group said. In Aleppo's rebel-held east, meanwhile, regime airstrikes and rocket fire had also targeted opposition neighborhoods Friday. The Observatory, said that at least three civilians had died in regime airstrikes there. Hours earlier, airstrikes killed 23 people at a holiday spot in northwestern province of Idlib, in a riverside area in the town of Darkoush, near the Turkish border. The death toll, which included 10 women and two children, is likely to rise due to the number of severely injured people, the Observatory said.Intense clashes were also taken place in several areas of Jabal al-Akrad between Nusra Front and Army of Islam fighters and the regime forces, which were backed by airstrikes, the Observatory said.
