The U.N. has warned that the Aleppo bombardment by Syrian and Russian warplanes could leave thousands more dead by the year's end.Elsewhere in Syria, the Observatory said Monday that pro-government forces recaptured two towns north of the central city of Hama in a counteroffensive aimed at reversing a string of losses to ultraconservative rebels in the region.In other developments, Russia will create a permanent naval base in Syria to expand its military footprint in its closest Middle East ally, a government official said on Monday, a week after Moscow said it was considering reopening Soviet-era bases in Vietnam and Cuba.
