Many areas around Aleppo are under attacks of Syrian government forces with aircraft and artillery.
Syrian rebels said they had regained control over parts of a strategic district of Aleppo on Thursday, August 9, 2012, after countering a sustained assault by President Bashar al-Assad's forces seeking to retake Syria's biggest city.
     
Several areas of the city were reported to have come under attack, including strafing from helicopter gunships and fightef aircraft of Assad forces. Syrian army has used mortars, artillery and aircraft to level rebel-held positions.

They said Syrian government army tanks had pulled back from Salaheddine, the southern gateway to Aleppo, and pockets of fighting continued across the district which Syrian official media said on Wednesday had been "cleansed" of rebel fighters.

In a report from Aleppo on Thursday, August 9, 2012,, the official SANA (Syrian Arab News Agency) said that the government had inflicted “heavy losses” on the rebels in a part of the city known as New Aleppo while government troops “continued purging” neighborhoods, including Salaheddiin, of what were termed “mercenary terrorists” from the Persian Gulf sheikdoms backing the rebels.
