Frontline VIDEO: Watch Syrian Army Tanks in Bustan al-Basha in Aleppo Neighborhoods
The footage shows tanks firing in the narrow alleys of the neighborhood and door-to-door fighting between the Syrian army and rebel groups.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that although airstrikes have almost stopped on the besieged eastern rebel-held neighborhoods of the city, government forces were pushing ahead in their ground offensive.
Syria’s military command said it would scale back its bombardment of the contested city of Aleppo on Wednesday to allow civilians to evacuate besieged rebel-held neighborhoods.
The announcement, broadcast on state TV, followed 16 days of airstrikes and shelling that have killed over 300 militants.
