Rebel fighters try to surround the international airport in Aleppo -- in an effort to gain control after weeks of fighting. Places that were once part of ordinary life in Syria have become war zones. The video, which could not be independently verified by Reuters comes more than two years after a conflict that began as a popular uprising descended into civil war. More footage reportedly from northwestern Syria shows the familiar sight of the aftermath of airstrikes. Video images from the northeast appears to show a storehouse for gain in flames. The conflict has already cost more than 70,000 lives and there are few signs that anyone can extinguish the violence.
