The U.N. Security Council Monday was considering a draft U.N. resolution imposing a cease-fire in Aleppo and putting an end to all military flights over Syria's war-battered city.Under the draft text co-sponsored by Spain, the council threatens to take "further measures" if the sides fail to comply, but it does not invoke Chapter 7 of the U.N. charter, which allows for sanctions and the use of military force.The text calls on U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to quickly present options to set up a monitoring mechanism of the cessation of hostilities with help from the 23 countries currently backing Syria's peace process.
