Both sides in Syria’s civil war committed repeated war crimes during the battle for Aleppo last year — indiscriminately killing men, women and children during months of “unrelenting violence,” a United Nations report said Wednesday.
Airstrikes by the Syrian government and its Russian backers were responsible for “claiming hundreds of lives and reducing hospitals, schools and markets to rubble,” according to U.N. investigators.
The Syrian government was also accused of repeatedly violating international law by dropping chlorine bombs on its own people, including children. The report said there was no evidence Russia had used chemical weapons in the conflict.
