The vote in the Security Council on Saturday afternoon was 11 countries in favor, two against and two abstentions.
French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault had warned before the vote that the continued bombing of Aleppo was killing civilians and destroying hospitals and schools — “and has nothing to do with combatting terrorism.”
“It is the annihilation of Aleppo,” he said.
