The latest report from Aleppo comes from a young student, 'Johnny', who told ITV News the city is much quieter now after a night of fierce fighting between government forces and the Free Syrian Army which controls large areas.
He watched Government jets bombing the Salah al-Din district which also came under heavy shelling.Most civilians have fled the area but worryingly this eye witness said some shells were falling on neighbouring suburbs where hundreds of families are taking shelter.
He says he was able to tour the city today and saw Assad's army still in control of the city centre but the Free Syrian Army (FSA) was openly patrolling several suburbs. Every sign the destructive battle for Aleppo going to drag on.
Baroness Amos has told ITV News she is concerned that the situation in Aleppo may be a repeat of the attack on the Syrian city of Homs.
While thousands have fled Aleppo in recent days as violence escalates, those remaining face severe food shortages amid the fierce fighting.
This is a revolution reliant on bravery and bravado and often not much else. This is a brutal fight to the death.
