Syrian activists say government troops fired from helicopter gunships on several neighborhoods of Syria's second-largest city of Aleppo on July 27.
Fierce fighting is being reported for a second straight day in the Syrian city of Aleppo, as government troops and rebel forces battle for control of the country's commercial capital.

Helicopter gunships and artillery shells were used by fighters loyal to President Bashar al-Assad to launch attacks on neighborhoods under control of rebel fighters.

Activists have expressed fear that many civilians in the city of 2.5 million may be injured or killed in the violence.

International peace envoy Kofi Annan has called on both sides to show restraint and work in favor of a political solution to the 16-month conflict.

The battle for Aleppo comes as Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem arrived in Tehran for unscheduled talks with Iranian officials on the issue.

Meanwhile, Russia warned that a "tragedy" was looming in Aleppo, a city of more than 2 million people near the border with Turkey.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists it was unrealistic to expect the government would stand by when armed rebels were occupying major cities.

Appeal to the people of Russia and China and bypass their compromised leaders on Syria. And hurry. Hell is at hand in Aleppo. Can you imagine the leadership of the UK or the US deploying attack helicopters on London or New York? This is madness. Assad has to be contained soon. There is no enjoying the Olympics while Aleppo — Syria's largest city and a world heritage site — is on a countdown to massacre and widespread destruction.

Yas, Lynn, I can imagine "UK or the US deploying attack
helicopters" over part of London, captured by parashuted SS
division, or over part of New York, captured by parashuted
Japanese division during WW2.
Syria consists of number of nationalities and religious denominations.
The only one that support insurgency of Jihadists are Suni
Arabs, even not magority of them but those that see conflict in
supporting war against Suni Arab insurgency, or being occupied
by Jihadists, some of wich would use behading by Sharia or
just murder of the deviants.
I hope that might explain why Syrian government and army are
not very decisive to mass-attack clearly Suni-Arab area of Aleppo...

one can say for sure, US-and-Saudi -supported Sunni thugs are being defeated by Syrian people. And wouldn't you notice, even few hundred mercenaries of colonel Gaddagi "army" were easily able to kick butt of those Wahhabi Sunni "shahids" armed by US and NATO minions. That's because Wahhabis are cowards, and poor fighters. They remind me "republic of Georgians". They can only hide behind NATO backs and cry for help from US and its NATO minions.

Jack, I think you need help.
The Syrian people are being killed by the Assad regime and it's Russian and Chinese backers.
Assad had a very close relationship with the Sunni Al-Qaida in Iraq terrorist network that he helped to equip and supply.
Anyone who supports the massacres comitted by Assad is vermin

Andrew was always fear, specially if one lied against Georgians.
This time, however, he simce over-supports Hillary's Borgios,
Probably because USA is a mind-limmitted brass heads
That kill people, lied to by nit-picking pro-Russia leads.

It is how Russia got CIA and other pseudo-patriots
Kill me and my mother for my forums's comments
Against Russia's expand, genocide and cleansing -
Russian proixies screamed I wrote "anti-American",
CIA murdered my mother 7/7/2012, I am also dead.

So, Andrew, I understand your are carefull, however
The question in Syria is - different nations are there
And religious groups were in ballance in Syria's past,
Split forced artificcially - starting with the Kohlmeyer,
Archeology provocateur and following Insurgent bust.

Assad made errors and over-reacted to threat, whell,
Why not make free polls and free elections? It is hell!

Jack is talking again?
His hate is comparable, rather,
To his hate to "Homofobic" strait men.
Georgians are the straitest among others,
Did a Georgian refused Jack's advances?

Georgians can fight on even with anyboby,
That was proven for the last 12 Milleniums.
However, Russia usurped all the arsenals
That USSR nations created and blackmail
Use it and Bechtel's A-bombs for bombing.

Georgians didn't believe Russian cowards
Would attack. When they did and stopped,
By smaller force loosing enough Russians,
Georgia withdrawn and allerted the World -
Avoiding ultimatum by Russia use A-bomb.

As for the rest of your comment, plagiarist,
You got my previous ballanced comments,
Perverting them to a chipest Russian twist,
Propaganda. Wahhabis were Russia bists
To cover cleansing Caucasus in the West.

I forgot about something that unfortunatly many might not know.
Genuin ethnic nations go by geneticly formed populations,
not by conquests and assimilation by the conquerors.
Look at my site "".

Most of the Caucasian World, including Arabs
in Arabian Pensula, created by pre-Georgians,
their villages moved from a Caucasian center,
starting about 11-12 thousands of years ago -
inviting local families, clans or tribes, creating
new nations.

Syria was one of the typical Caucasian ethnos
That later, also, was part of ancient countries -
As Media (South-East Caucsus) Uited Nations,
Hetite-Lidian (South-West Caucasus) Common
Wealthes and so on.

As many others Syria was conquered by Arabs,
lead by Ishmaelites, incited by Chaldean prists,
turn Muslims, making Arabs too brutal in a total
assimillation policy.

Eventually Muslim nations, starting with Persia,
restore their own ethnography - with "Arabized"
among them.
It is how many "Arabised" nations appeared.

Mameluks made new nations more Caucasian,
being mostly from Georgia and Caucsus.
Syria, as many other countries made of the all
that were there and many Arabs, even more so
let Syria people be free and deside themselves
What kind of country they want.
Why force the military choice of one or another?

Why force all ethnoces, even just Muslims, be
"Arabised", thus all "Arabised" be Arabs, thus all
Arabs be Ishmaelites, thus all Ishmaelites be the
Chaldean-Babilonian pristhood of Muslims, thus
Chaldeans be creators of "World Bagdad halifat"
and repopulate the World by Nordic, like Russia,
Germanics and Chaldeans?
