Aleppo a city of slaughter as diplomats struggle for solutions

Fighting raged in the battle scarred Syrian city of Aleppo as the UN envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura held talks with Russian Foreign Secretary Sergei Lavrov.

Rebel militia launched dozens of fatal rocket attacks at government held districts hitting an obstetrics hospital.


The population of the destroyed city remained defiant:“Neither Assad, nor America, nor Russia – no one in the world can make us leave Aleppo. We will stay. We will stay in spite of Assad. He is a lowly dog and all those with him.”
Joanne Liu from Doctors Without Borders addressed the UN: “For me today, what is needed is to take action to prevent attacks, not just to vote and pass a resolution here.”
The UN Security Council voted on and passed a new resolution aiming to protect civilians and health workers in war situations.
