Nine-hundred-and-six Syrian children have been killed by Russia in Syria in the last year. These innocent children were slaughtered among 3,804 civilians killed by the forces of Vladimir Putin since Russia moved into Syria one-year-ago today, to prop up the failed regime of Bashar al Assad.
According to figures released by the London based, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, and published by the Associated Press(AP) earlier today, Russian forces have killed a total of 9,364 people in Syria in a year's time. Of the deaths by Russian bombs, 3,804 were civilians, including an alarming 906 children. Russia is also credited with killing 2,746 members of the Islamic State(IS) and 2,814 members of other groups fighting the regime of Bashar al Assad.
More than 100 children have died in and around Aleppo, Syria, in the past week, as attacks by Russian and Assad forces targeted medical centers, bakeries and other installations.
Humanitarian conditions have deteriorated in and around Aleppo since Assad's regime announced as failed a ceasefire agreement between the United States(US) and Russia. Assad and his allies have seized upon the opportunity since the broken ceasefire to launch air and ground attacks upon rebel held areas in Aleppo.
The United Nations(UN) health agency, the World Health Organization(WHO), has decried as, "unfathomable", the situation for medical care personnel in parts of rebel-held Aleppo. WHO's Dr. Rick Brennan, director of emergency risk, has categorized as too dangerous the situation in eastern Aleppo for outside medical workers to enter, the AP reported. WHO has appealed for permission to evacuate the sick and injured. Dr. Brennan has confirmed that there are 846 wounded civilians in eastern Aleppo, including 261 children, who are in need of care.
Adding to the compounded humanitarian tragedy that is still unfolding in Syria, the WHO has also confirmed that fewer than 30 doctors remain in eastern Aleppo to service 250,000 people.
Factually, the deaths of Syrians via the hands of Russia continue after one year of Putin's intervention to help Assad. Conditions could get even worse unless a 48-hour humanitarian ceasefire is permitted to allow for the evacuation and the delivery of aid to trapped civilians in Aleppo.
