Syria Video Feature: Amid US Airstrikes, Worries About Regime Advance in Aleppo

Rami Jarrah reports for ANA Press from insurgent frontlines in the divided city of Aleppo.

Jarrah finds that civilians have fled the area, fearing regime forces will take advantage of the US intervention to launch an offensive. He talks to insurgents who are divided between defiance — declaring that only better coordination is needed to defeat Syrian forces in the 27-month battle for Aleppo — and worry.
