Syrian government troops start general offensive on Aleppo

2012-07-26 18:21

The command of the Syrian government forces has started a general offensive on Aleppo districts.


"A few dozens of kilometers south-east of Aleppo there were observed organized columns of troops, including motorized, which appears to have begun a general offensive on the city, some quarters of which are occupied by the armed opposition", the BBC reported.

Talal Al Mayhani, the founder of the opposition movement "Building the Syrian state", stated many residents of Aleppo have left their homes and now are living in schools and university dormitories. The authorities are gathering more troops and tanks to the city.

Recall, July 25, Turkish authorities completely closed the border with Syria.

According to the Minister of Customs and Trade of Turkey Hayati Yazici, the decision was explained by the fact that several checkpoints had been captured by Syrian rebels. In this regard, the official Syrian authorities can no longer guarantee the security of the border.

Closure of the checkpoints will affect the companies that carried out trade with Syria. Trucks with goods continued to cross the border despite the hostilities. With regard to refugees fleeing to Turkey, they previously preferred to use the roads used by smugglers.
