    The Syrian province of Aleppo is again under heavy bombardment by government warplanes targeting rebel fighters.

    Millions of Syrians have lost their homes during the country's six-year war, which has seen the Syrian government, backed by Russia and Iran, trying to quell uprisings by opposition groups.
