On Wednesday, government bombing and airstrikes in Aleppo, Syria destroyed a bread distribution center and two hospitals.
The attack killed seven people, while at least one of the medical facilities were destroyed and nonoperational, as informed by activists and medics.
The children’s agency at the UN said on the same day that a minimum of 96 children lost their lives. It also reported that more than 220 children were injured in eastern Aleppo over the last five days.
This is one of the deadliest phases for civilians in the entire nation during the five-year civil war, according to CBS News.
Justin Forsyth, UNICEF deputy executive director, stated that the military slaughter left children holed up in a ghastly nightmare. He added that the shock and agony among children was the worst they had ever seen.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon explained at a Security Council meeting the current situation in rebel-acquired eastern Aleppo by saying that the place has turned worse than a “slaughterhouse.”
“Those using ever more destructive weapons know exactly what they are doing – they know they are committing war crimes,” Ban said.
The Government of Syria is now waging a massive offensive in Aleppo, Syria. Russia, too, is carrying out airstrikes to aid the devastated city.
According to Almasdar News, in Northern Aleppo, Syrian Armed Forces, mainly Liwaa Al-Quds, launched a major attack at the Handarat Refugee Camp. The assault led to the capture of the area, while Fatah Halab escaped to the west.
In southern Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army’s Republican Guard and 4th Mechanized Division, backed by Hezbollah, are currently aiming for the Sheikh Sa’eed District. The territory is under absolute control of the jihadist rebels.
The quietest of all four zones was West Aleppo. It was going through momentary bombings by Syrian and Russian air forces; the jihadist rebels fired missiles at the government-controlled areas.
