There is a major battle taking place west of Aleppo near the city of al Atarib.

An alliance of rebel brigades started an offensive on a government battalion known as Force 46 more than a week ago. But civilians are trapped, unable to find a safe haven and stuck in what is essentially an open battlefield.

Our correspondent Andrew Simmons gained exclusive access to the fighters and a field hospital near al Atarib.
