Syrian government forces battled rebel fighters on several fronts in ground attacks in Aleppo on Wednesday, rebel officials said, as the army and its allies pressed a Russian-backed offensive to take back the city. A senior rebel official said pro-government forces were also mobilizing in apparent preparation for more ground attacks in central areas of the city, which is divided into zones controlled separately by the rebels and government. Another rebel official said government forces were also attacking the insurgent-held Handarat refugee camp a few kilometers to the north of Aleppo.
