UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is "profoundly concerned" about renewed fighting in Syria, calling on all sides to "recommit immediately" to the ceasefire and protect civilians, Ban's spokesman says.
"The secretary general is profoundly concerned about the dangerous escalation of fighting in and around Aleppo and the intolerable suffering, counted in mounting deaths and destruction, it is causing among civilians," says Stephane Dujarric.
"The collapse of the cessation of hostilities will only bring more violence, death and destruction, while further weakening efforts to find a negotiated solution to this brutal war."
