Siege of eastern Aleppo resumes as Syrian government re-takes army site

September 4, 2016 22:24

Syrian government forces and their allies recaptured areas in southwestern Aleppo on Sunday that rebels had seized last month and laid siege to the city's opposition-held eastern sector for a second time since July, rebels and monitors said.

The areas recaptured, after weeks of bombardment and attempts to drive the insurgents back, included the government's Ramousah military complex on the city's southwestern outskirts.

Rebels captured the complex last month in an assault that broke through the first government siege of eastern Aleppo
