In two weeks of the Syrian regime and Russia bombing Aleppo, at least 376 people have been killed and 1,266 injured, according to the United Nations. More than 100 of the dead are children. 

Three of the nine hospitals in eastern Aleppo have been bombed out of service, and three Aleppo-based Syrian Civil Defense centers were bombed.

Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad denies the country is targeting civilians and hospitals.

The U.N. Security Council is set to vote on an immediate truce in Syria. But Russia will likely veto it.
