    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — The Syrian army has been fighting back insurgents who attacked military school quarter in the northern city of Aleppo for two days, a source in the local militia told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

    "This morning fierce fighting resumed on the territory of the military logistics and artillery schools. The operation is supported by air forces and artillery," the source said.

    According to the city's militia, the Syrian army is driving insurgents away from their positions in the area.

    Being close to the highway connecting Aleppo with other provinces, the military school quarter is strategically important for control over the city's supply routes.
