Heavy clashes have erupted in the besieged town of Nubbul in Syrias Aleppo after foreign-backed militants attacked civilians, al-Alam reports.

According to our reporter, militants launched an assault on impoverished town of Nubbul on Saturday, which resulted in clashes between them and resisting people.

A harsh siege has been imposed on the towns of Nubbul and neighboring al-Zahra by occupying militants for nearly a year.

Conditions are reported to be gravely hard for some 70 thousands residents of these towns as the insurgents have tightened their grip over people and carried out daily attacks on them to prevent them from contacting the army or any outsider.

Food and medicines have been scarce for months and if people survive epidemic diseases, they may lose their lives within a second at the hands of insurgents who have shown no mercy on people.

The militants who control the area are mostly Libyans, Caucasians and Afghans.

According to a report on June 26th by al-Alam reporter, all the streets are empty and people do not dare leave their homes as they would be shot by armed men moving through the town.

“Last week, a shopkeeper managed to bring in some food supplies and along with several other people, I went to his shop,” another resident told our correspondent. “The armed men fired mortar shells at the shop, killing a boy and several other people. I was wounded in the attack too… It was a horrible scene”.

“My son took some food to his brother’s home. They (the militants) attacked them with shells and killed them both,” a mother cried hard.

Crisis in Syria started in March 2011, when pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of Western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government boosts its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent about warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
