The Syrian government has renewed its offensive on Aleppo, ahead of US-Russia peace talks over the weekend.

The Syrian government has given the go-ahead to UN aid convoys with the exception of Aleppo.

In the government-held western sector, at least four children were killed when shells landed near a school, in what the state news agency described as a ‘terrorist attack’.
