The few doctors remaining in the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo have written an open letter to US President Barack Obama begging him to intervene.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces have continued to lay siege to the country’s second city as rebels continue their desperate last stand.

On Saturday, an alliance of two dozen rebel groups in the sole remaining corner of the city currently under their control managed to push the forces back far enough to create a corner to allow food and supplies to get through.

Last month, the Syrian Army took control of the last road into the city with the help of Russian air strikes.

The 29 doctors who remain in the city have urged Mr Obama, in a letter seen by The Independent,  to intervene and create a zone to Aleppo’s east which is protected from airstrikes.
