Fresh airstrikes signal 'endgame' in Aleppo

ITV News correspondent Dan Rivers, who recently returned from Aleppo, says that fresh airstrikes in the Syrian city feel "like an endgame" which may last months.

He said that Russia confirmed they were targeting ammunition depots, arms factories and training camps in Idlib province and Homs.

They did not say they were targeting rebel-held eastern Aleppo, although footage obtained earlier by ITV News appears to show airstrikes in that part of the city.
