To save Aleppo is worth more than a victory of one side or the other on the field! they must establish humanitarian corridors and supplies for civilians. and then the end of the fighting must be addressed to the bitter end. A UN peacekeeping force would be appropriate. Of course, it takes time to be realized and cooperation from Damascus. Meanwhile, the people of Aleppo die. Peace must be imposed in the name of those that suffer. A sort of " Aleppo, an open city". Read all
