The UN's Commission of Inquiry for Syria (COI) says it has received reports that militants in Syria’s Aleppo are preventing civilians from leaving the city and are using them as human shields.

The COI released a statement on Wednesday, saying it had received “allegations of opposition groups… preventing civilians from leaving as well as opposition fighters embedding themselves within the civilian population, thus heightening the risk to civilians of being killed or injured.”  

Meanwhile, Aleppo University Hospital was overwhelmed with wounded civilians, including large numbers of children, as militant shelling continued in the city’s residential areas.

Three people were killed and at least 45 more were injured after militants attacked several neighborhoods in the city.
