Warplanes pound Syria's Aleppo, U.N Securiy Council meets

With the help of Russia, Syrian government forces led an aerial bombing of a stronghold in the northern region of Aleppo. Russia's involvement in the latest offensive by Syrian forces appears to have squashed any hope for diplomacy since the collapse of the international ceasefire last week. The goal for the Syrian forces is to capture the rebel-held half of Syria's largest city, where there are more than 250,000 civilians are trapped. In doing so, this accomplishment would become the biggest victory of the civil war for President Bashar al-Assad's forces.
