This video posted on social media purports to show the aftermath of an air strike on the Aleppo neighborhood of Al-Saleheen. The area is controlled by rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.I Government troops and rebels appear to be trying to improve their positions before a proposed truce takes effect on Monday. A war monitor reported clashes around both Aleppo and the capital, Damascus. However, previous peace agreements have crumbled within weeks, with the United States accusing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his allies of attacking opposition groups and civilians. And the ceasefire will not apply at all to the jihadist groups Islamic State or Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, which was previously known as the Nusra Front.
