Syrian army recaptures all of northeast Aleppo

Syria's rebels lost all the northern neighborhoods of their stronghold in east Aleppo on Monday, as the army gained significant ground in its offensive to recapture the entire city.

On Monday, government forces seized the Sakhur, Haydariya and Sheikh Khodr districts, while Kurdish fighters took the Sheikh Fares neighbourhood from rebels, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said. The government advances mean the regime now controls at least a third of eastern Aleppo, just under two weeks into its renewed bid to recapture the city.
