Approximately 40km from the shelling in Aleppo, residents of a small town in a Free Syrian Army-controlled zone are facing food and fuel shortages while living in fear of retaliation from the army of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

With high prices and insecurity, the mood in the town is far from one of liberation.

“There is no bread, no gasoline, no oil. Whatever you look for, you can’t find,” one resident said.
