Syrian rebels launched Sunday a large-scale offensive south of Aleppo, in an attempt to break the regime siege on parts of the country's largest city.Now rebels have attacked from the south, a region divided between loyalists backed by Iranian fighters and Hezbollah on the one hand, and Syrian and foreign militants allied with rebel groups on the other.Fifteen regiments, including 5,000 rebel fighters, are participating in the campaign, labeled as "Anger for Aleppo," sources close to Hezbollah said, along a front of more than 20 km, mainly on Ramouseh-Rashidin axis.Three children were among 11 civilians killed in rebel rocket attacks launched from Rashidin on the government-controlled district of Hamdanieh in western Aleppo, the Observatory said.The latest advance by the Syrian Democratic Forces opened the way for some 2,300 additional civilians to evacuate the town, the Observatory said.
