BEIRUT (Reuters) - A Syrian rebel official said on Wednesday that insurgents had launched counter-attacks against government forces in the city of Aleppo as fighting raged on after a truce deal appeared to collapse.
Zakaria Malahifji of the Fastaqim group told Reuters that his men “have begun a military action” from their last remaining areas of control in the city.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group and a witness reported that insurgents had staged a car bomb attack southwest of the historic Old City.
