Rebel alliance launches 'battle for all of Aleppo' in Syria

A rebel and jihadist alliance says it has started a battle to recapture the whole of the northern Syrian city of Aleppo. The move follows the breaking of a government siege in eastern neighborhoods.

The "Army of Conquest," a coalition of rebels and jihadists including the former Al-Nusra Front, said in a statement Sunday it would "double the number of fighters for this next battle."

The group said it planned to "liberate all of Aleppo" from government troops after its success reopening a route into besieged eastern neighborhoods, where an estimated 250,000 civilians are trapped.
The statement added that the group "will not rest until we raise the flag of the conquest over Aleppo's citadel."
Syrian rebels control eastern Aleppo while the pro-regime forces of President Bashar al-Assad hold western areas of the country's largest city.

On Sunday, the insurgents came under intense air attack from pro-government forces trying to repel their advance, which saw the rebels break through a strip of regime-controlled territory and ending a month-long siege of the only remaining open route into the northern city.
"We have now seized full control of the Ramousah area...We are in our trenches but there are insane air strikes of unprecedented ferociousness. The regime is using cluster and vacuum bombs," said Abu al Hasanien, a senior commander in Fateh Halab, the coalition of moderate rebel groups inside the city.
