By Michelle Nichols UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United States called the assault on Aleppo by Syria and Russia "a gift" to Islamic State on Thursday, saying it was sowing doom and would generate more recruits for the militant group. Moscow vowed to press on with its offensive in Syria, while U.S. officials searched for a tougher response to Russia's decision to ignore the peace process and seek a military victory on behalf of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. United Nations aid chief Stephen O'Brien urged the 15-member U.N. Security Council to stop "tolerating the utter disregard for the most basic provisions of international humanitarian law." The recent focus of the fighting is a Syrian and Russian bid to recapture rebel-held eastern Aleppo.

The Syrian government on Thursday criticized the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State for destroying two bridges on the Euphrates river this week in areas the jihadists hold in the east of the country. Monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said warplanes most probably from the coalition hit the two bridges in Deir al-Zor province on Tuesday and Wednesday, making them unusable. The attacks "confirm the so-called international coalition's intent to bomb and destroy Syrian infrastructure and economic and social establishments through repeated aggressive acts," state TV quoted the foreign ministry as saying.

Protesters gather along Broadway Avenue to protest the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man on Tuesday by officers in El CajonA Southern California police officer who shot an unarmed black man pointing a vape smoking device had been at the scene for less than two minutes when he opened fire, in a killing that set off two nights of protests, a police official said on Thursday. The incident in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon came as racially charged anger over similar incidents in two other U.S. cities over the past two weeks had started to subside. El Cajon officer Richard Gonsalves and a colleague on the police force, whose name was not released, were responding to calls about a mentally unstable man walking in traffic, officials said.
