Rebels in Aleppo have agreed to form a new military alliance headed by “Abu AbdulRahman Nour,” to protect the city they control from the brutal assaults by the regime and its allies.

The new alliance would be called the Aleppo Army and would be led by the commander of the Jabha Shamiya rebel faction, one of the major groups fighting in northern Syria under the Free Syrian Army.

A commander at the Jabha Shamiya told Reuters that the new coalition will help in the centralization of the decision-taking process.

The situation in Aleppo is escalating, with the regime forces seizing more than 40% of Eastern Aleppo, 15 days after the eruption of the massive assault to restore the second biggest city in Syria.

The UN had said that Russia is working on setting up four humanitarian corridors to evacuate the wounded victims and provide medical and food supplies for the trapped civilians in East of Aleppo.

The scene in Aleppo is tragic; dead bodies all around the neighborhoods that are controlled by the opposition after the assaults led by the regime.

The majority have fled the city and those who chose to stay there, are living without the bare necessities.

International reporters and journalists are all describing the situation in Aleppo as hopeless amid the constant attacks from the regime forces.
