The crises in the Syrian city of Aleppo has gained international attention in the past week, after intensive aerial bombing left most medical facilities, civil defence and municipal centres and vehicles, as well as schools, destroyed or damaged.

Key routes once securely connecting the city to Turkey were also recently chocked off, leaving civilians trapped without supplies such as food, medicine and water.
