The Heat: Journalist Roundtable

The Heat

Smokes rise in east and west neighborhoods during a battle between forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad and rebels in Aleppo, Syria, Monday, Dec. 5, 2016. The government seized large swaths of the Aleppo enclave under rebel control since 2012 in the offensive that began last week. The fighting was most intense Monday near the dividing line between east and west Aleppo as government and allied troops push their way from the eastern flank, reaching within less than a kilometer, about half a mile, from the citadel that anchors the center of the city.
