Tens of thousands flee as Syria regime advances near Aleppo

Rescuers search for survivors following a reported air strike on the rebel-held neighbourhood of al-Kalasa in the northern Syrian city of AleppoTens of thousands of Syrians were apparently streaming towards Turkey on Friday as regime troops pressed a major Russian-backed offensive around Aleppo, while Moscow and Ankara traded barbs over the escalating crisis. Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, speaking at a conference in London where donors pledged more than $10 billion in aid for Syrians, said up to 70,000 people were headed towards his country to escape the fighting. Some 300,000 people are thought to be isolated in Aleppo after the rebels’ main supply route was severed by regime forces backed by Russian warplanes in an offensive that scuppered peace talks this week.
