The Streets of Aleppo
The rebels claim that their Free Syrian Army (FSA) controls 70% of Aleppo, but there is no way of checking this or finding visual evidence as no one can cross to the "other side," to the parts of Aleppo still under government control. Jérôme Sessini has covered the six battle fronts in Aleppo: Bustan al-Basha, Bustan al-Qasr, Salah al-Din, Al-Amria, Sheikh Said and the Old City. Rebels and Syrian soldiers observe one another across the ruins, sometimes speaking, screaming abuse and accusing the others of fighting for the wrong cause, of killing their fellow countrymen.
