The day that was supposed to mark an end to Aleppo's violence started with some of its most despicable. The sun had barely risen when an ambulance was attacked, as it tried to evacuate injured children. The rebels blamed an Iranian backed militia. Whoever carried it out is guilty of a war crime.
It is a dawn chorus like nowhere else - not of birdsong but gunshots. This is how Aleppo wakes up most mornings. But only half its citizens are on the receiving end of the ferocious bombardment unleashed by President Bashar al-Assad 's forces.
Israel will investigate the shelling of a UN school in Gaza to decide whether Israeli fire was responsible for an attack which killed at least 16 people. Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev told BBC's Newsnight programme: "We will investigate that. And if we find that it was errant fire from Israel I'm sure we will apologise."
