Aleppo like Leningrad under siege - Syrian Dep. PM

Militants have completely cut off all supply routes to the Syrian city of Aleppo said Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil.

According to Jamil it is not even possible to deliver food to Aleppo. He said the armed insurgents have stopped all supply lines and that they are conducting attacks on them.

"The conditions in Aleppo remind me of the besieged Leningrad," said the Deputy Prime Minister.

He added that most of the residents of Aleppo are loyal to the government but in the vicinity of the city there are many militants opposed to President Bashar al-Assad.
