ALEPPO HOS­PI­TAL HIT AS SYRIA ARMY PRESSES AS­SAULT

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

DA­M­AS­CUS: The largest hos­pi­tal in re­bel­held east Aleppo was bombed for the sec­ond time in days as Syr­ian gov­ern­ment forces pressed a Rus­sian-backed of­fen­sive to re­take the en­tire city. Aleppo, once Syria’s vi­brant com­mer­cial pow­er­house, is now at the heart of a ma­jor mil­i­tary cam­paign by Pres­i­dent Bashar al-As­sad’s fight­ers and his ally Moscow. The of­fen­sive, an­nounced on Sept 22, has seen dozens of civil­ians killed and res­i­den­tial build­ings flat­tened in the east, where some 250,000 peo­ple live un­der gov­ern­ment siege. – AFP
