AMMAN - Syrian rebels battled army units on Saturday in the northern city of Aleppo, forcing hundreds of families to flee their homes, opposition activists said.

Activists in the Sunni Muslim city of 3 million people, an industrial and commercial hub close to the border with Turkey, said the army was pushing troops and armored vehicles into Saladin district.

The large neighborhood in eastern Aleppo, inhabited by both Arabs and Kurds, has been under rebel control for two days.

Fighting was also reported in al-Sakhour, a poor area on the edge of the city inhabited by members of four large Arab tribes which have started to turn against Assad, they said.
