Syrians walk amid the rubble of destroyed buildings following reported air strikes by regime forces in the rebel-held area of Douma, east of the capital Damascus, on August 30, 2015.

Deborah Amos, who covers the Middle East for NPR News, and David Sanger, national security correspondent at The New York Times, talk about the latest news in Syria, where the death toll has reached an estimated 520,000.

A U.N. relief official called the crisis in Syria's capital city of Aleppo the "apex of horror."

"It is horrendous in Aleppo," said Amos. "For Syrians this is a day to day reality."
