The human toll and suffering in Syria is "sickening and obscene" in a senseless fight where there is nothing much to gain, a senior UN official has warned.

In a latest incident, 20 people were killed including two doctors when two rockets hit a hospital in Aleppo city, a grave violation of international humanitarian law.

Meanwhile, the increasing level of violence in the country over the last two weeks could lead to a potential collapse of a recently negotiated truce.

Jocelyne Sambira has the details.
