SYRIA TRUCE TEETERS AF­TER RAIDS ON ALEPPO

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BEIRUT: Syria’s cease­fire ap­peared on the brink of col­lapse yes­ter­day af­ter a US-led coali­tion strike killed dozens of regime sol­diers and Aleppo city was hit by its first air raids in nearly a week. The bar­rage of strikes on rebel-held dis­tricts of Aleppo on Sun­day risks reignit­ing bat­tle­fronts in the city and could be the most se­ri­ous threat to the cease­fire so far. A halt to fight­ing around Aleppo and the de­liv­ery of des­per­ately needed hu­man­i­tar­ian aid were key com­po­nents of the frag­ile deal. – AFP
