Suffering in Syria

Syrians walk past damaged homes during heavy fighting between Free Syrian Army fighters and government forces Tuesday in Aleppo, Syria. Meanwhile, Syrian forces continued to press an intense counteroffensive against rebels in the Damascus suburbs, as the government blamed rebels for a mortar attack that hit a school, and the United Nations warned that the increasingly dangerous situation in the country was making it hard to provide enough food to displaced Syrians. In Brussels, NATO foreign ministers endorsed the decision to send Patriot missile batteries to Turkey, as concerns persisted about reports of heightened activity at Syria's chemical weapons sites.
