Rebel fire on an aid distribution center in Syria's Aleppo city has killed three people, including a Red Crescent volunteer and a child, sources said Thursday.

The Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) and the International Committee of the Red Cross confirmed the volunteer's death in Wednesday's incident.

"One SARC staff member was killed. Seven SARC volunteers and staff were injured, three of them severely,".

"Two beneficiaries who had come to the center to receive humanitarian aid also died, and several others were injured."

The so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group identified those two killed as a woman and a child.

The rocket fire hit a SARC distribution center in the Hamdaniyah neighborhood of the city, which was fully retaken by army forces in December.

The Observatory also reported five children were killed Wednesday when unexploded ordnance detonated in the Bustan al-Qasr neighborhood, a rebel-held district recaptured by government forces in December.

Syrian army forces have carried out operations to clear explosives from east Aleppo and authorities have encouraged civilians to return to their homes.

Aleppo was once Syria's economic powerhouse and a tourist draw for its ancient markets and famed citadel.

But it was ravaged by fighting from mid-2012, when terrorists seized the eastern portion of the city.

Years of conflict ended after government forces reclaimed full control of Aleppo on Dec. 22.
