Rebels make gains in Aleppo city

As Syria's opposition makes progress in the beleaguered northern city, they hope for full control.

    The opposition in Syria is hoping it can gain the upper hand in Allepo city now that its fighters have taken control of a district in the southeast.

    The territorial gain has blocked the government's only land route into areas it controls in the west of the city.

    But as Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports from Aleppo, the government is fighting back.
