Fire Consumes Historic Aleppo Market

A fire devoured a historic market in Aleppo on Saturday, as government forces and rebels clashed in Syria. The fight for Aleppo has lasted more than two months, and has begun to take its toll on the country’s infrastructure and historic landmarks. A YouTube video showed gunfire erupting at the Souk Madina, a centuries-old marketplace, though the authenticity of the video hasn’t been verified. At least 94 people were killed across Syria in fighting Saturday, according to opposition groups.
