Heavy clashes rage in Aleppo after truce deal stalls - Syrian Observatory

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Heavy clashes including shelling and gunfire raged in the Syrian city of Aleppo on Wednesday after a truce deal meant to halt fighting between government forces and rebels stalled, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

“The clashes are violent and bombardment is very heavy ... it seems as though everything (the ceasefire) is finished,” Rami Abdulrahman, director of the British-based monitoring group, said.
