Aleppo residents defy siege to stay home

More than two million have left but Syrians who chose to stay home resort to desperate measures to protect themselves.

    The war in Syria has forced hundreds of thousands of families from their homes, and according to the United Nations almost two and a half million people have already crossed into neighbouring countries.

    But many millions more are displaced within Syria.

    In the city of Aleppo, many people have stayed put despite the ongoing fighting between rebels and the Syrian army.

    Al Jazeera's Liz Dunkerley reports.
