"Syrian government forces and their allies on Monday captured strategic high ground in embattled Aleppo as Russia -- a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad -- said it was not planning more 'humanitarian pauses' in the fighting in the city's eastern, rebel-held districts. Fighting resumed in Aleppo over the weekend, following a days-long lull announced by Moscow that was meant to allow rebels and civilians to leave the eastern districts. The rebels rejected the Russian offer and none of the civilians left. Government troops launched a fresh offensive and on Monday took the hilltop of Bazo on the southern edge of Aleppo, near military bases, and shelled the rebel neighborhoods, according to opposition activists."
