In a telephone call to Russian foreign Minister Lavrov, State Secretary John Kerry repeated that dozens of civilians die because of these shellings. City infrastructure is also damaged: just days ago two hospitals were raised to the ground in Aleppo. The shellings do not seem to stop for more than a week. During this time, at least 350 people were killed. Human rights watchdogs accused Russia of shelling not the Islamic State headquarters, but civil quarters were Assad regime opponents live.
