A timeline of the history of the battle of Aleppo which has been continuing for the past 4 years.
Syria’s civil war reached Aleppo in July 2012 when the terrorists, who had already taken control of most of the northern areas of the province, entered the city. Aleppo was soon divided between a western half under government control and the east, held by western-backed terrorist groups.
Up until 2016, the frontline that split the city changed little. However, a major push by the Syrian Army in the last days of November resulted in more than 10 neighbourhoods being taken in a few days with terrorists left with just two-thirds of the territory they captured in 2012.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that a victory for his army in Aleppo would be a "huge step" towards ending the country's five-year civil war.
