Russian planes renewed bombing of Syrian city Aleppo, Syrian activists report. On October 12th, attackers used bunker buster bombs in the eastern part of the city. 

Local department of "Doctors without borders" organization reports that there are only 11 ambulances left in Aleppo. Others were destroyed during shellings or do not have necessary repair parts. There are still 275 thousand people living in Aleppo.

The bombings renewed after a short ceasefire, called by the Syrian government, partly to allow civilians to leave rebel areas in the east of the city.

Last week, Russia vetoed a UN Security Council resolution drafted by France calling for an end to the bombing in Aleppo. On Monday, the French foreign minister has said he will ask the International Court of Justice to investigate possible war crimes in Syria. The next day, on October 11th, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson warned that Russia could turn into an international pariah if it continues its Syrian politics. Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin canceled a planned visit to France.

The video below shows how Aleppo looks like now, after months of fierce shellings.
