The battle for Aleppo continues, with rebels claiming they are still in control of the city.
Clashes near Syria's rebel Idlib enclave have claimed the life of a famed goalkeeper who became a rebel fighter. Abdelbaset Sarout first sang protest songs in 2011, as President Bashar Assad began his crackdown.
Syrian government forces and Iranian militiamen came under attack shortly after midnight in the northern province of Aleppo. One of the jihadi groups involved in the assaults is linked to al-Qaida.
The lives of 3 million civilians in jihadi-controlled Idlib are at risk due to an escalation in Syrian and Russian attacks. The fighting threatens a shaky truce that has been in place since September.
