Fighting in Syria's Aleppo after rebels 'break siege'

Rebel fighters fire towards regime forces in Ramussa on the southwestern edges of Syria's northern city of Aleppo, on August 6, 2016Syrian regime forces were on the defensive around Aleppo on Sunday after a rebel alliance said it inflicted a major setback by breaking a three-week government siege of the battered city. A coalition of rebels and jihadists surged through regime territory on Saturday to open a new route into Aleppo’s besieged eastern neighbourhoods, home to an estimated 250,000 people. The breakthrough was met with euphoric scenes among civilians and opposition fighters in eastern districts, but sparked fear of food shortages among residents of regime-controlled western areas.
