Surviving in Syria's besieged Aleppo

2016-09-09 14:35:011 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Aleppo was Syria's biggest city before civil war uprooted half of the country's population and killed hundreds of thousands of people. It is now the conflict's biggest prize. Opposition-held areas are now under total siege and heavy bombardment as President Bashar al-Assad's government attempts to deal a death blow to a five year rebellion.
The city has been divided into rebel and government-held zones for years. But recent months have seen government troops, backed by Russian air strikes and Shi'ite fighters close in on the rebel zone, where a quarter of a million people remain trapped.
Civilians reached by Reuters over the Internet and telephone tell of a bleak existence amid the ruins. There are shortages of food, water and electricity, and incessant fear for their own lives and their loved ones.
