aleppo - A bombardment of Aleppo rebels said Friday at least fifteen civilians killed. Over a hundred people were injured. The shells came down in the west of the Syrian town. The rebels barricade themselves in the east.
One of the goals of the rebels was the airbase Nairab. The attack would reduce the rebels pressure of the siege by the Syrian army in the east of Aleppo. After the shelling, they want to start a new major offensive against the West.
Aleppo is the largest city in Syria, and since the beginning of the civil war six years ago, hard-fought.
