Syrian troops capture hospital north of Aleppo

"Russia now has lead responsibility for rebuilding Syria".

On September 30th a year ago, Russian Federation began an air campaign backing forces of the Syrian President Bashar Assad and turning the balance of power in his favour. "The Russian jets operated from the Khmeimim air base located in Syria's Latakia Governorate".

After the campaign launched by Russian Federation and the Syrian regime to retake Aleppo, Brennan said it was obvious what to expect: "There will be shrapnel wounds, there will be blast wounds, there will be burns, penetrating injuries to the head, chest and abdomen".

The iconic city of Aleppo is the worst affected location in the country, where to estimates, since the 22 September announcement by the Syrian Ministry of Defence that it would launch an offensive there, some 320 civilians were killed and 765 injured in the first days.

Russian Federation also established the Reconciliation Center in Syria, "tasked with helping to monitor the cessation of hostilities and implement global peace proposals on the ground".

Aleppo has been a center of violence in recent months.

These are not simply numbers to be added to a tally, these are individuals, family lives that we have collectively failed to save, " lamented Mr. O'Brien, who is also the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs.

Earlier, Sergei Ryabkov, Russia's deputy foreign minister, said the USA threat to suspend talks on Syria over the bombardment of Aleppo's rebel-held areas constitutes "an emotional breakdown".

The officials said the failure of diplomacy in Syria has left the United States administration no choice but to consider alternatives, most of which involve some use of force and have been examined before but held in abeyance.

Jabhat Fateh al-Sham group: Eight fighters have been killed fighting at Suleiman al-Halabi. If the offensive stalls, Mr. Putin can send Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov back to renew the deal with Mr. Kerry.

"The agreement was part of a larger peace plan, which also included the delivery of humanitarian aid, in particular to Aleppo". Russian Federation is an unreliable partner with an agenda at odds with US goals.

Residents say they've never experienced anything like the new "bunker-buster" ground-penetrating bombs, created to destroy shelters and basements under the ground.
