Al Jazeera: Syrian rebels launch Aleppo counterattack
Heavy shelling takes place in government-held areas while shelling of a school kills several children.
Syrian rebels staged a counterattack in Aleppo with heavy shelling of government-held areas after a weeks-long Russian-backed offensive against besieged districts held by rebels.
