For Phelan, it’s already her third time this year in Aleppo. A few months ago, she visited Sheikh Maqsoud, a city district. At a time, a antithesis dismissed from another area, al-Sakan al-Shababi, into Sheikh Maqsoud.

However, usually a few weeks ago, antithesis army were depending on that highway to get reserve from opposite a Turkish border.
“Rebels positioned themselves in a south of a city, and a supervision has been carrying out strikes and artillery conflict to cut off their supply routes,” Phelan said. This is a new development, after a rebels had mislaid several areas and a supply track in a north. There are also other areas in Aleppo they control.
