Hospitals, schools and people fleeing violence have been “targeted by direct air strikes” that may amount to war crimes, the UN said.
The US, Saudi Arabia, Britain, France and other nations are demanding the UN Security Council takes action to ensure aid convoys reach millions of needy Syrians as violence diminishes.
In eastern Aleppo, bodies still lie under the rubble, graveyards are full and children take classes in mosques because their schools have been ruined by war.
The campaign for Syrian refugees has been launched in an attempt to foster friendships across a border hostile for decades.
The initiative was proposed by Russia, President Bashar al-Assad’s most powerful ally, with the support of Turkey and Iran, Assad’s other major ally.
The proposal will mostly be floated during the meeting of BRICS Sherpas next week, before the leaders of BRICS gather in Goa later this month.
