ALEPPO, Syria (Reuters) - The bombardment of rebel-held Aleppo as heard from the government-held zone of the Syrian city is the most intense for days, a Reuters journalist in government-held Aleppo said on Monday.

"The bombardment did not stop for a moment overnight," the journalist said, describing it as the heaviest heard since arriving in the government-held sector several days ago.
