Syrian Observatory says rebels link up with fighters in besieged Aleppo

BEIRUT - The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday that Syrian rebels fighting government forces had linked up with fighters from besieged eastern Aleppo, breaking a month-long siege.
But it said no secure corridor had yet been established between the two rebel-held territories.
The Observatory and a witness said heavy fighting and air strikes were continuing in the Ramousah area of southwestern Aleppo, home to a major government military base, where the siege was breached after a rebel offensive that began this week.
