Russia halts UN condemnation of Aleppo air raids

Published: 01.09.14, 07:36 / Israel News

Russia on Wednesday blocked a UN Security Council effort to denounce the Syrian government's air strikes on rebels in the city of Aleppo with Scud missiles and barrel bombs that have killed some 700 civilians.


The British-sponsored draft statement would not have been enforceable but it could have been a building block toward a later resolution. A UN diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations were private, said Russia introduced amendments that watered it down so it had no meaningful impact on the situation in Aleppo. Britain could no longer support the draft. (AP)
