At least eight people have been reported killed, and more injured after a double airstrike hit the town of Azaz in Northern Syria.

Video released from the scene shows locals searching through massive piles of debris for survivors, while carrying any survivors to help.According to witness reports, a single plane carried out two strikes on Wednesday, demolishing many homes and other structures. The exact number of casualties remains unclear. Some reports say at least 30 have been killed in the strike, but the Associated Press reporters at the site have only confirmed eight deaths so far.Azaz, which is situated some 30 miles north of Aleppo, has been under rebel control since insurrectionists pushed out government forces last month.It is not known if the strike targeted any specific locations, but according to AP reporters, one of the sites is close to a local office used by rebel forces.
