Heavy fighting was on Thursday continuing around Aleppo and its neighbouring provinces between the Syrian army and various rebel groups opposed to President Bashar Assad.

A video released by the Syrian government showed heavy fighting in the 1070 region in Aleppo, including government tanks shelling and setting fire to a building that was purportedly being used by the rebel militia.

The rebels have launched a counter-offensive, clashing with government forces on a number of fronts in a renewed attempt to break the government's siege on the city's east.
