*Syrian government forces and their allies have advanced in Aleppo overnight, seizing another neighbourhood from rebel-held areas as they press an offensive to recapture the whole city.*
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights stated that the capture of Tariq al-Bab means the government has now retaken the majority of the east of the city. The government’s capture of Tariq al-Bab came after ferocious clashes that sent civilians flooding out of the adjacent neighbourhood of al-Shaar.
Swathes of East Aleppo held by rebels have been seized by government troops and militiamen in the past three weeks.
According to activists, more than 300 civilians have been killed in east Aleppo since the government resumed its offensive to remove the rebels from there on November 15 and some 250,000 people remain trapped in besieged areas of the city.
