Syria: Aleppo pounded by 'heaviest bombardment' since war began

Aleppo is back under fire after a three-week hiatus from violence.  In the past 5 days, almost 300 people have been killed in the bombings.  Hospitals have become a huge victim as none in the city are operating at full capacity or considered functioning.  UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the actions as indiscriminate shelling that has killed or maimed hundreds of civilians including children.  He let out a statement reminding everyone that the bombing of civilians is a war crime and that those responsible for what is going on in Syria will one day be brought to account.
