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

    The air raids have forced thousands of civilians to flee the area and set up makeshift camps in the countryside.

    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.
