Since last September Aleppo, Syria's largest city and its former economic capital, has been at the receiving end of what the pressure group Human Rights Watch (HRW) calls "an indiscriminate and unlawful air war against civilians by the Syrian government". Last month HRW produced a study into the scale of the attacks.
-It is difficult to me figuring out what the meaning of the city has been at the receiving end of an unlawful war, really means. Receiving? I would appreciate your help, providing some similar examples.
