Syrian Army Advances, Now Rules Half of Aleppo; Some 310 Civilians Killed in Aleppo in Past Month

Syria's army advanced deeper into east Aleppo today (December 3, 2016), so that it now controls more than one-half of the former rebel stronghold, according to the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website.

Tens of thousands of civilians have fled eastern neighborhoods of the battered northern city since Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime began its latest offensive in mid-November.

Around 310 civilians have been killed in the government's assault on east Aleppo since November 15, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The fighting has prompted more than 50,000 people to leave east Aleppo for territory controlled by either the government or Kurdish forces.
