BEIRUT (AP) - Syrian activists say two government airstrikes have killed at least 29 people in the north.

Rami Abdurrahman, the director of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, says military warplanes targeted rebel positions in an opposition-held district of Aleppo city midday Saturday, but the attack missed the target and slammed into a crowded vegetable market, killing 14 people.

In a separate airstrike on the town of al-Bab near Aleppo, 15 people were killed, Abdulrrahman said.

Another activist group, the Aleppo Media Network, confirmed the airstrikes and posted a video of what it says was the aftermath of the al-Bab raid. Plumes of smoke are seen rising from ground, strewn with twisted metal and chunks of broken-up concrete. Men can be seen pulling a person, who appears dead, out of a car.

The videos appeared authentic and corresponded with The Associated Press' reporting of the airstrikes.
