Aleppo Resisting a Slaughter - Siria
More than 100,000 people have died in Syria since the conflict began two years ago, which has left millions displaced, hundreds of thousands of migrants, an economy in ruins. The protests, which began in March 2011, calling for democratic reforms, but were silenced by the regime of President Bashar Al-Assad and led to the civil conflict that still continues. Aleppo is the second most populous and important city in Syria after Damascus, was the major economic and commercial center before the conflict. Now is divided into areas controlled by the rebels and others by government troops.
