Syrian govt forces advance in southwest Aleppo, close off rebel route

BEIRUT - Syrian government forces and their allies recaptured territory from rebels in southwestern Aleppo on Tuesday, Hezbollah's Al Manar television and pro-Damascus Al Mayadeen reported.
The advance, supported by heavy air raids, seized an area of called Telat al-Snobarat on the southwestern outskirts of Syria's largest city, according to Al Mayadeen.
It cut off a rebel route into the opposition-held east of Aleppo that insurgents had opened just days before in a surprise advance against government forces, the channels said.
