A Hell upon the Children of Aleppo - the War Crimes of Airstrikes

That 38 children were among the 327 war dead from air strikes in and around Aleppo, Syria, in the last week, and that half the casualties being treated in bombed-out and ill equipped medical centers are children, and that some 100,000 children remain in the middle of the conflict, are all indicative of a new hell which has widened over the fate of Syria's children as war crimes in the form of air strikes launched by Russia and by the Bashar al Assad regime, continue upon civilians in Syria.

Some 250,000 civilians are trapped within Aleppo as Russia and Assad continue to drop bombs upon the sector. Britain's Permanent Representative to the United Nations(UN), Matthew Rycroft, according to a BBC-News report, has said that the attacks had "unleashed a new hell on Aleppo" which he categorized as war crimes. 

Of the dire condition of the Aleppo children, Save the Children's spokeswoman, Caroline Anning, admonishes:"Across the board things have never been worse for Syrian children." While the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reports that 38 children have died of 327 deaths from air strikes across Aleppo in the last week, sadly, there appears to be no end in sight.

The war in Syria has claimed more than 250,000 deaths in the last five-years and has displaced more than 11 million Syrians. Diplomatic attempts by western nations to end the conflict have been vetoed before the UN by Russia with the backing of China on more than two occasions. 

Syrians are dying in the conflict, not Russians. Syria to Russia, has obviously become a contest to retain a friendly warm-water port over any other cause of humanitarian concern. Hence, Syrians, with assistance of western nations, are the only ones vested to conclude the prolonged conflict of death to so many children.
