A Syrian regime airstrike hit a field hospital near the northern city of Aleppo, say activists from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

According to the NGO, 11 people were killed from the attack and dozens more wounded by the missiles that slammed into the facility in the town of Al-Bab, reported Fox News.

The group said a Yemeni doctor was among those killed in the airstrike.

Over the past year, President Bashar Assad’s regime has carried out airstrikes in order 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.
