U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wants all aircraft over key humanitarian routes in northern Syria grounded in order to facilitate desperately need aid deliveries.

Kerry told the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday that such a step could restore credibility to efforts to end the five-year civil war and “give a chance for humanitarian assistance to flow unimpeded.”

A U.S.-Russian cease-fire that went into effect nine days ago has all but collapsed. The U.N. suspended aid deliveries after a strike on a humanitarian convoy this week.
