At least 70 fighters have been killed in less than 24 hours of fierce clashes between pro-government forces, extremists and rebels in Syria's Aleppo province, a monitor said Wednesday.Pro-government fighters -- backed by government and Russian airstrikes -- retook the villages of Zaytan and Khalasa to the southwest of Aleppo city after losing control of them hours earlier, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.The area overlooks the government's supply road around the south of Aleppo city, linking the government-held Nayrab airport to the city's southeast and areas controlled by government troops to its west, he said.
