“Darkness and fear in Aleppo”

I’ve blogged in the past about the atrocities in Aleppo but the past week has been the most devastating to date. Assad is preparing for a final assault with 10,000 troops, 338 civilians including 100 children have been killed sine the ceasefire ended (WHO), and 80% of convoys have been blocked from getting into the city.

I went to a Foreign Relations Committee hearing this week on Syria and, unfortunately, government officials believe we will be seeing reports like this for the foreseeable future. Check out this Washington Post report for a vivid account of the grim situation in Aleppo.
