The war-torn Syrian city of Aleppo is among the areas hardest hit by today's deadly earthquakes, which also devastated parts of southern Turkey.

Emergency rescue teams said many buildings were damaged or destroyed and people were trapped under the rubble.

A video posted on social media shows buildings collapsing like a house of cards, and mothers with children in their arms fleeing in panic through the streets of Aleppo.

In another video, he now sees a man rescuing a baby pulled out from under the rubble.

Millions of refugees displaced by the civil war live in the region.

It is one of the places under the control of the Syrian government, which is still fighting opposition forces. Parts of the surrounding villages are under the control of the rebels.

Many areas of the city had already been destroyed by the conflict before the earthquake struck.

In northern Syria, more than 1.000 people have died in the earthquake so far.

As the BBC reported, it is not entirely clear how many victims there are in Aleppo.
