Syrian state media said Friday that rebels shelled a mosque in a government-held area of the northern city of Aleppo, killing at least 15 people and wounding 30.

State TV said several rockets hit the mosque and its surroundings as worshipers were leaving after Friday prayers. It said the attack struck the Malla Khan mosque in the Bab al-Faraj neighborhood.

The shelling comes after government airstrikes on rebel-held parts of Aleppo were reported shortly after a morning lull had engulfed the contested city, following days of violence that killed scores.
