For the first time, the UN Security Council has unanimously backed a Syrian peace plan.

The 15-member council, which includes New Zealand, approved a roadmap to end the country's nearly five-year long war.

It calls for a ceasefire; however, airstrikes against terrorist organisations, like Islamic State, would continue.

Talks focused on a political transition will begin next month.

The war in Syria has already killed more than a quarter of a million people, and the cities have been bombed so badly that hospitals are having to be built underground.

But even then they're not safe from government airstrikes.
