Syria rebels ‘break government siege’ of Aleppo



Mafnews-Syria: Rebel factions in Syria say they have broken a weeks-long government siege of Aleppo, amid scenes of rejoicing in the crucial northern city.


Sources close to government forces denied that they had been pushed aside and said they had driven the rebels back from an artillery base.


UK-based opposition activists say the rebels have indeed managed to link up with their comrades in eastern Aleppo.


But the rebels have so far failed to establish a secure route, they add.
