The Syrian army clashed with insurgents on the northern edge of Aleppo city Friday, residents and activists said, threatening to take the last main rebel supply route into the city and trap opposition forces and civilians inside.Although there are smaller, more indirect routes into Aleppo, taking the road would significantly reduce the rebels' ability to resupply and it would also allow the army to besiege areas of the city which fell to insurgents two years ago. Bidour said clashes were ongoing in the villages of Sifat and Dowir al-Zeitoun, around eight kilometers (5 miles) north of Aleppo.
