Ten children died in the attack as students and teachers prepared an exhibit of art depicting their nation at war.

BEIRUT — A Syrian fighter jet struck a school with a missile in the northern city of Aleppo Wednesday as teachers and students prepared an exhibit of drawings depicting their nation at war, killing at least 19 people, including 10 children, activists said.

Bulldozers removed rubble from the smashed building, with children’s drawings and paintings scattered in the debris, according to activist videos of the government airstrike on a school in the opposition-held eastern part of the city.

In another video by opposition activists, the bodies of 10 children wrapped in brown and blue sheets are seen on the floor of a hospital ward while a woman screams in the background.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 19 people were killed in the strike, including 10 children. The local Aleppo Media Center put the toll at 25 killed, most of them children.

Parts of the two-story Ein Jalout school appeared to have been completely smashed, according to the videos.
