The Syrian army and its allies launched a major attack on insurgents south of Aleppo, described as the fiercest government assault in the area since an agreement to ease the fighting came into effect in February.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based activist group that tracks the war, said airstrikes, artillery and rockets were being used in an attack aimed at recovering Talet al-Iss, the town seized in the Nusra Front-led assault.Any offensive on Deir al-Zor or Raqqa, however, would probably need significantly more firepower than the Palmyra assault.Daesh claimed the bombings in an online statement, saying it carried out a suicide attack on government forces.
