Clashes between Syrian army, opposition continue in AleppoAugust 1st, 2012 - 1:05 am ICT by IANS
Damascus, July 31 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The Syrian army continued its crackdown on opposition forces in the country’s industrial and financial centre Aleppo, reported Syria’s state TV Tuesday.
Some observers view the battle for Aleppo as a major watershed in the Syrian conflict which could decide the future of the armed uprising against President Bashar Al Assad.
“Armed forces continue to hunt the remnants of terrorist groups in Aleppo’s Salaheddin district and inflict heavy losses on the enemy,” said the report.
Aleppo, a city of 2.5 million people, has remained the hotspot of Syria’s civil conflict since last week, when pro-government forces launched a massive assault on the city in a colossal push to regain control of key territories across the country.
