Syria forces 'targeting' civilians in Aleppo

6 years ago10 views

Syria's second-city of Aleppo is bearing the scars of more than two months of attacks by government warplanes, tanks and heavy artillery as the army battles to dislodge rebels who claim to control 60 per cent of the northern metropolis.

"We don't have enough weapons, they [the Syrian army] don't have enough men," Abu Haidar, a rebel fighter the city's southwest Saif al-Dawla district, told the AFP news agency on Saturday.

At least 200,000 people have fled the city since late July when the increasingly bloody conflict spread to Aleppo, a once thriving manufacturing and commercial hub where war has now left a trail of destruction, with bombed out buildings and shuttered shops.
