Clashes initiated by the Assad regime forces and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK/PYD)- affiliated People's Protection Units (YPG) terrorists have intensified in Aleppo's rebel-held eastern district over the last couple of weeks, causing a great humanitarian plight and bloodbath.

Russia-backed Syrian regime forces, along with Shiite militias, have gained ground in the latest fierce clashes.

Especially over the last 2 days, the dirty alliance has taken control of 10 neighborhoods.

Taken by forces loyal to Assad and Shiite militias, northeastern Holluk and Bustan al-Basha districts of Aleppo, which had been controlled by Syrian rebels for 4 to 5 years, were handed over to PYD.

Roughly 300 PYD terrorists have invaded those districts, while most civilians have moved to southeastern districts Inzarad, Meshed and Qatirci, still controlled by the Free Syrian Army.

Meanwhile YPG, the armed branch of the PYD, conducted a simultaneous attack to the Bustan al-Basha district, as regime forces launched an assault on rebel-held areas.

A Russian TV channel shows the footage of so-called flags of PYD and the regime, waving side by side on a building.

PYD is an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, which is recognized as a terrorist organization by Turkey and much of the international community, including, the U.S. and the EU countries, and has carried out an armed struggle against the Turkish state for nearly 30 years.

Turkey blames the terrorist group for the deaths of tens of thousands of people.
