Syrian army, allies press major offensive north of Aleppo
The Syrian army and its allies made further advances on Tuesday in a major offensive that could cut insurgents' supply lines between the north western city of Aleppo and the Turkish border, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The advances, backed by allied militia and heavy Russian air support and which Syrian state media also reported, appear aimed at breaking through rebel-held territory north of Aleppo to reach the Shi'ite villages of Nubul and al-Zahraa. It is the first major offensive north of Aleppo - a city split into areas held by the government and the opposition - since Russia began its air campaign in support of President Bashar al-Assad on Sept. 30.
