DAMASCUS, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) — Intense battles raged Saturday in an area infiltrated by the rebels during their wide-scale offensive in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo, a military source told Xinhua.

The “violent” confrontations between the Syrian army and an array of rebel groups, including extremest ones, flared in the Assad Suburb area, which was infiltrated by the rebels in western Aleppo on Friday, the source said on condition of anonymity.

The rebels infiltrated the Assad suburb as part of a major offensive they unleashed a day earlier with the aim of breaking the government forces’ siege on the rebel-held areas in eastern Aleppo city.
