The UN Security Council is reportedly preparing to vote on a resolution for a temporary ceasefire in the embattled city.

The purpose of the ceasefire is supposedly for the delivery of humanitarian aid in the jihadist-held part of the city.

According to diplomatic sources, the resolution, drafted by Egypt, New Zealand and Spain, will be put to vote during a Monday session.

It urges all parties to the conflict in Syria to “immediately cease any attacks in the city of Aleppo to allow urgent humanitarian needs to be addressed” for a period of seven days that could be extended, the sources added.
