Syrian ceasefire “barely alive”

There has been a drastic escalation in violence in Syria, with “dozens” killed in an airstrike on a hospital run by Medicins Sans Frontiers in Aleppo. The attack is understood to have killed the city’s last remaining pediatrician.

The New York Times reports:

At least 27 people, including three children and six staff members, were reported killed in the strike on the hospital, which turned it into a smoking pile of rubble on Wednesday night, and 20 were reported killed in airstrikes on Thursday. At least 14 people, mostly civilians, were killed in the mortar attacks on government-controlled areas, said officials at a hospital where casualties were streaming in throughout the day on Thursday.
