Fighting wreaks havoc on Aleppo

Neither ambulance drivers nor journalists are safe as Syrian government seeks to retake rebel-held neighbourhoods.

    As the fight for Aleppo, Syria's largest city, goes on, larger swaths of the commercial capital are being flattened and destroyed by gunfire and shelling.

    The increasing violence has affected more than just the rebels who are struggling to hold territory against the government: journalists and ambulance drivers have been hit as well.

    The United Nations says at least 200,000 people have fled, with many expecting a climactic battle for the country's north.
