NHK - Syrian troops launch offensive in Aleppo

Syrian troops have deployed tanks as they step up an attack against rebel strongholds in the country's north. The soldiers have reportedly retaken control of areas in the capital Damascus held by the Free Syrian Army since earlier this month. The government reportedly sent 20000 troops to the northern commercial city of Aleppo on Tuesday. Opposition forces say the troops have launched fierce ground attacks using tanks in Aleppo's Salaheddine district since early Wednesday. Syria's state-run TV says the troops have recaptured the rebel stronghold. But an anti-government activist in Aleppo has denied that claim. He told NHK that fighting is fierce but anti-government troops continue to control more than half the city. He said the rebels will emerge victorious in the end. Syria's neighbor Turkey is feeling the heat from the conflict. It says that more than 1700 Syrians sought refuge in the country on Tuesday and Wednesday. More Syrians are expected to flee their homes. Aug. 8, 201
