[ Rush footage] Syrian govt. forces advance inside militant-held Aleppo

Syrian troops are advancing in and around the northern city of Aleppo in an attempt to lay siege to insurgent-held parts of the city. If successful, the operation would be the biggest blow to the foreign-backed militants since they entered Aleppo two years ago.
Meanwhile, the military commanders of the so-called Free Syrian Army have warned that the country risks a “humanitarian disaster” if its supporters do not send more weapons to help them fight the ISIL militants and government forces.
