The Syrian army has inflicted heavy losses on the insurgents in Aleppo over the past few days.

The government troops clashed with the insurgents in the central area of Hanano during the early hours of Thursday.

The Syrian army says its forces are in full control of the southwestern neighborhood of Salahuddin.

On Wednesday, the Syrian troops also engaged the insurgents in several areas of Aleppo, including the northern neighborhood of Ashrafyiah, the southern district of Sokkari and the central area of Seif al-Dowla.

Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil that began in Syria in March 2011.

The anti-Syria Western regimes have been calling for President Assad to step down.

Israeli spy chief Dan Meridor said on August 7 that Tel Aviv supports regime change in Syria.

On August 5, US senators John McCain, Joseph Lieberman and Lindsey Graham said Washington should “directly and openly” provide assistance, including weapons, intelligence and training, to the insurgents in Syria.
