The media also report that the US-Russia alliance to end the conflict in Syria is slowly crumbling, as the two countries start blaming one another for the failure of the talks and of the cease-fire. The Washington Post reports that Russia accused the US government of pretending to ignore that the opposition has been sympathizing with "terrorist" groups and criticized the alleged inconsistency of the Obama administration’s decision to deploy extra troops to Syria, despite its earlier pledge not to get further involved in military operations in the country. On the other hand, the US claimed that Russia and the Assad regime have repeatedly violated the ceasefire on purpose, in order to drag the opposition into open fighting again.
The media finally report that airstrikes hit a hospital in a rebel-held neighborhood of Aleppo, killing at least 20 people. News reports say that government air strikes killed at least 84 civilians in the past six days.
