At least five people were killed and 15 others wounded on Monday when an improvised rocket slammed an area in Aleppo city in northern Syria, an official source told Xinhua.

The rocket slammed the New Aleppo neighborhood in Aleppo city, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The rocket was fired by the rebels in the countryside of Aleppo, the source added.

This comes as the Syrian army captured large areas in the southern countryside of Aleppo, following battles with the Islamic State group.

Last December, the Syrian army and allied fighters fully wrested control over Aleppo city, after dislodging the rebels from the eastern part of Aleppo.

Since then, sporadic rockets slammed several neighborhoods in the city, leaving many people either killed or wounded.
