U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry Wednesday demanded that Russia and the Syrian government immediately halt flights over Syrian battle zones, in what he called a last chance to salvage a collapsing cease-fire and find a way "out of the carnage".On the ground, rebels battled against the forces of the government of President Bashar Assad on major front lines near Aleppo and Hama, and airstrikes reportedly killed a dozen people, including four medical workers."If we allow spoilers to choose the path for us, the path of escalation ... then make no mistake my friends: The next time we convene here, we're going to be facing a Middle East with even more refugees, with more dead, with more displaced, with more extremists and more suffering on an even greater scale".He mocked what he described as absurd Russian explanations for an attack on an aid convoy Monday that Washington says was carried out by Russian warplanes. A rebel fighter in the Aleppo area said warplanes had been bombing all night in preparation for an attack.The army reported carrying out airstrikes on seven areas near Aleppo.Syrian government forces also launched a major advance in Hama province in the west of the country.Rebel sources also reported an attempt by pro-government forces to advance in the Handarat area to the north of Aleppo, saying this too had been repelled.
