Washington Post: Russia vetoes U.N. Security Council resolution to end Aleppo bombing
Russia vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution on Saturday aimed at stopping the bombing in Aleppo as France warned that the city would be remembered as a place where civilians were “abandoned” to death.
It was the fifth time Moscow has used its veto in as many years as a deadlocked Security Council tries to end a war that has claimed almost half a million Syrian lives.
During that time, the warplanes of President Bashar al-
Assad have focused their might on the rebel-held suburbs of eastern Aleppo. More than 377 civilians have been killed there since the Sept. 19 breakdown of a truce brokered by the United States and Russia.
Barrel bombs, artillery attacks and cluster munitions have also targeted doctors and first responders pulling survivors from the rubble.
