Syria rebels put up fierce fight in Aleppo

Rebels open new front against pro-Assad villages to try to secure another supply route.

    It has been weeks since the Syrian government launched an offensive to cut off rebel supply lines in northern Aleppo.

    The opposition is putting up fierce resistance because losing this battle would mean losing its strongholds in the city.

    That is why the rebels have opened a new front against pro-government villages further northwest to try to secure another supply route.
