Warplanes bombard Aleppo for second day

www.Physinews.com: Rebel-held areas of Aleppo have come under
heavy bombardment for a second day after
the Syrian government announced the start
of a major offensive.

A squadron of five aircraft was in the skies
above the city on Friday morning, with
bombing waves targeting the east of the city,
according to Ammar al Selmo, the head of the
civil defence rescue service.

He said the aircraft were Russian and added:

"What's happening now is annihilation."

Sky sources said at least five different parts
of Aleppo were hit on Thursday evening,
days after a week-long ceasefire collapsed.

Video footage showed burning buildings and
a journalist for the AFP news agency
described seeing a street on fire after cluster
bombs fell.

Incendiary bombs were also among the
armaments dropped on the city.

Aleppo is home to 250,000 people and has
been under constant government siege since
September. Rebels have held the city since

President Bashar al Assad has denied
bombing civilians in the city, and has
blamed the West for much of the destruction.

It comes after the US and Russia failed to
agree on how to revive the ceasefire following
a "long, painful, difficult and disappointing"
meeting on Thursday night.

The International Syria Support Group, which
includes the US and Russia, met on the
sidelines of the UN gathering in New York.

US Secretary of State John Kerry expressed
concern at the new Syrian regime offensive in
the city.

He said: "We have exchanged ideas with the
Russians and we plan to consult tomorrow
with respect to those ideas.

"I am no less determined today than I was
yesterday but I am even more frustrated."

Both countries agreed a deal on 9
September, which included a nationwide
ceasefire, improved humanitarian aid access
and the possibility of joint military operations
against al Qaeda-linked groups.

But it fell apart after the bombing of an aid
convoy on Monday, which killed 20 people.

UN Syria mediator Staffan de Mistura said:

"The good news is that Russia and the US
agreed to work intensely on a possible
restoration of it.

"It was a long, painful, difficult and
disappointing meeting.

"The next few hours, days maximum are
crucial for making it or breaking it."
