Airstrikes Resume on Aleppo

For the first time in weeks Syrian warplanes carried out airstrikes in eastern Aleppo were rebels were reportedly hiding out.  The airstrikes began as preliminary operations on the city on Tuesday.  The Government sent a mass text message to Syrians in eastern Aleppo to leave in 24 hours or get caught in the airstrike.  One women died and five people were injured by a barrel bomb dropped by a helicopter.  The Syrian state television claims they were launching precision weapons to target terrorist position.  Syrian state television also claims that the Syrian Army has boots on the ground in several areas to tighten their control on rebel-held neighborhoods and has cut off supply lines from Idlib in the north.
