SdeM: Good afternoon. I will read some few points because I think the meeting as such was intense and timely, and therefore I think we need to be very precise in what we say.
First of all, you must have heard, because this was a public meeting, what has been the content of the interventions both of the members of the Security Council and my own, so I will not repeat it, but let me just summarize some few points, and of course I will take some questions. The time is appropriate for that.

A fresh wave of intensive air strikes hit the city's opposition-controlled east from dawn on Monday, an AFP correspondent in the city said, on the morning after Moscow and Damascus were repeatedly accused of war crimes at the UN Security Council.

Residents in Syria's battleground city of Aleppo cowered indoors Saturday as fierce air strikes toppled buildings and killed at least 45 civilians, after diplomatic efforts to revive a ceasefire failed.
Nearly two million civilians were left without water in the devastated northern city after regime bombardment damaged a pumping station and rebels shut down another in retaliation, the United Nations said.
DAMASCUS, 23 September 2016 – “Nearly two million people in Aleppo are once again with no running water, through the public network.
“Intense attacks last night have damaged the Bab al-Nayrab water pumping station which supplies water to some 250,000 people in the eastern parts of Aleppo. Violence is preventing repair teams from reaching the station. In retaliation, the Suleiman al Halabi pumping station, also located in the east, was switched off - cutting water to 1.5 million people in the western parts of the city.
