Rebels in Aleppo killed 11 regime troops and wounded at least 10 others when they detonated a building near the city's historic citadel, in the third such attack this month using a network of tunnels.Fierce fighting was also reported around the Aleppo Central Prison, with two regime officers killed, the Observatory said.Although ISIS has been busy clashing with an array of rebel groups since early January, it managed to kill six regime troops and paramilitaries late Tuesday near the town of Safira, southeast of Aleppo, the Observatory said.The Observatory said that the regime side had suffered casualties, but did not give an exact figure, but said the rebels managed to disable a regime vehicle.The United Nations and Syria's Red Crescent began operations to evacuate trapped civilians and deliver aid inside besieged parts of Homs on Feb. 7, covering some 1,400 of the estimated 3,000 people trapped for more than 18 months by a government siege that forced residents to survive on little more than olives and wild plants.
