The United States has reacted with outrage over a series of airstrikes on a hospital in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.
US Secretary of State John Kerry says in a statement it appears to have been a deliberate strike. Kerry says the airstrike follows the Assad regime’s "appalling record of striking such facilities and first responders."
He also says Russia has an urgent responsibility to press the regime to fulfill its commitments under UN resolutions. These include stopping attacks on civilians, medical facilities and first responders, and abiding fully by the cessation of hostilities.
The United Nations now assesses the situation in Aleppo to be catastrophic, Kerry says.
