Ban cited reports of air strikes involving the use of incendiary weapons, bunker buster bombs and other powerful munitions in the offensive launched by the Syrian army two days ago to recapture the city. Intense air strikes toppled buildings and killed at least 45 civilians in Aleppo on Saturday while nearly two million people were left without water in the war-battered city.
