Sausan Ghosheh, the spokeswoman
for the U.N. mission in Syria, said that international observers had
witnessed warplanes firing in Syria’s largest city, where intense
fighting has been raging for 12 days. She said the situation in Aleppo
was dire, with “heavy use of heavy weapons” including tanks, which the
rebels now possess as well.

“Yesterday, for the first time, our
observers saw firing from a fighter aircraft. We also now have
confirmation that the opposition is in a position of having heavy
weapons, including tanks,” she said, adding that for civilians, there
“is a shortage of food, fuel, water and gas.”

Residents of Aleppo
have told The Associated Press over the past week that jet fighters have
been strafing rebel positions and there are numerous videos on the
Internet posted by activists showing rebels commandeering regime tanks
after conquering their bases.
