BEIRUT —

Syrian activists say government warplanes have hit a field hospital near the northern city of Aleppo, killing 11 people.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says dozens more were wounded by the missiles that slammed into the facility in the town of al-Bab on Wednesday. The group, which relies on reports from activists on the ground, said a Yemeni doctor was among those killed in the airstrike.

President Bashar Assad's regime has in the past year relied heavily on its air power to regain control of territory it lost to the opposition, pounding suspected rebel targets with war planes and helicopters, particularly in the north where the opposition controls large swathes of land and parts of Aleppo, Syria's largest city.
