The bread oven in Atareb, a town roughly 25km west of Aleppo city, that served an estimated 120,000 people in and around an opposition-held western Aleppo town is completely out of commission after a reported Russian airstrike, a journalist in the town told Syria Direct on Wednesday.

The oven was “the largest in terms of size and production in the western Aleppo countryside” before it was bombed on Tuesday, Amer al-Faj, a journalist from the town told Syria Direct on Wednesday. Strikes also hit an industrial secondary school and the transportation directorate.

Atareb is controlled by several rebel factions, including FSA brigades and Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat a-Nusra. The Islamic State had a presence in the town in 2013, its fighters were driven out in fighting with other rebels in January 2014.
