Civilians in the territory of the Syrian city of Aleppo, which is controlled by the rebels, "are in real hell." This was stated by a senior UN official Steven O'Brien, the BBC reports.
He urged the parties of the conflict to allow the evacuation of hundreds of people in urgent need of medical assistance.
According to observers from Aleppo, Syrian government forces with the support of Russia continued the successful offensive on the city districts, which are under rebel control.
According to the Syrian Monitoring Centre for Human Rights, based in the UK, at night Russian forces inflicted massive air strikes on border areas controlled by the rebels.
Because of this government troops gained control of areas in the north of the city.
It should be noted, earlier this week the Syrian government warplanes bombed in Aleppo two hospitals controlled by the opposition.
Recall that the government troops of Bashar Assad began a ground offensive on the city of Aleppo, after a ceasefire collapsed.
