Russia has mooted 1 March as a potential date for a ceasefire between rebel factions and Bashar al-Assad’s army in Syria. The fiercest fighting is taking place in Aleppo where government forces are advancing rapidly.
The siege in the northern city, which was Syria’s most populous before the beginning of the civil war in 2011, has led to thousands fleeing towards Turkey. The rebel forces including National Coalition of Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces and Jabhat al-Nusra, have been decimated by Russian airstrikes.
