Aleppo's bombing on the same scale as before 'humanitarian pause'

250 thousand civilians are still thought to be residing in the besieged city - UN

New fighting after a three-day "humanitarian pause". The Syrian city of Aleppo is again under fire.

Syrian governmental forces together with Russian aviation bombarded the city neighborhoods where rebels are reportedly located. At least 20 people died, however it is unknown if they were civilians or military.

According to the UN reports, 250 thousand civilians cannot leave the besieged city.

Last Thursday, Moscow and Damascus declared their intent to temporarily stop the bombing and create humanitarian corridors so that all people willing to leave the city could do so. However, those corridors were shelled several times so not all residents could flee.

As Washington Post reports, the US President Administration doesn't exclude the possibility of sending more firepower to CIA-backed Syrian rebels but only if Moscow breaks the talks and peace cannot be reached diplomatically.
