Violent clashes continue. Media scoundrels and dubious sources claim "the Syrian regime is gearing for a 'massacre....' "

Al-Khabar TV reporter Sarkis Kassargian told RT:

"Last night, rebels attacked government buildings and police and intelligence centers in Aleppo. But they didn't succeed to control any of those places. Attacks and clashes then occurred, but the Syrian army was acting in defense."

Insurgents control Al Hadi and Al Saher neighborhoods. Despite heavy fighting, residents aren't "fleeing the city in droves."

"Right now, there is no movement from government forces. Some families and residents in Aleppo are leaving the city, but most people are just moving to safer areas within the area, such as a local school and university."

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov defended Assad, saying:

"How can one expect that the Syrian government will say, 'Yes go ahead, overthrow me.' "

"Our Western partners, together with some of Syria's neighbors, are essentially encouraging, supporting and directing an armed struggle against the regime."
