The Syrian Army is Not Attacking Aleppo But Defending It

The news media in the West portrays the recent fighting around Aleppo as a Syrian army attack on Aleppo.
In mid 2012 the Syrian rebels launched their great offensive ("Operation Damascus Volcano") aimed at overthrowing the government. This included attacks on Syria's two biggest cities: Damascus and Aleppo.
Now those reinforcements, together with the rebel fighters previously in the city, are encircled and trapped.
