The Russian Defense Ministry declared a 48-hour cessation of hostilities in Aleppo starting early Thursday, according to Russia Today news agency, following a day of fierce clashes in the province between regime and opposition forces. Earlier Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry accused Syrian President Bashar Assad and Russia of selectively enforcing a "cessation of hostilities" agreement in Syria while a government campaign to retake Aleppo continued unabated. In Aleppo province, dozens of fighters were killed in a fresh bout of fighting between the regime, rebels and militants south of Aleppo city, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The opposition-held sector of Syria's divided city of Aleppo has been cut off by an escalation of air and artillery strikes on the only road in, putting hundreds of thousands of people under effective siege.Eight Hezbollah fighters were also killed in Aleppo according to security sources.
