Syrian government seizes industrial area in Aleppo in offensive against rebels

The Syrian army backed by allied fighters has taken control of factories in the northern province of Aleppo, as part of a wide-scale offensive against rebel-held areas. A military source has told China’s Xinhua news agency that military forces captured the industrial area of Shaqif in the northern countryside, which further secures Castelo Road, the only supply route to rebel-held areas in eastern Aleppo. On Sunday Russia said its foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry had spoken on the phone about the situation in Syria. UN agencies say civilians there face “a level of savagery that no human should have to endure”.
