Insurgents in the Salah Ed Dine district of Aleppo today:
I joined Monocle 24's The Briefing just after noon, British time, to assess the latest situation in Aleppo.
Although the situation is still in flux, I think the take-away line holds up: "The longer it takes the regime to retake the country's largest city, the greater the erosion of authority."
There is also discussion beyond the military situation, with consideration of the effect of the economic squeeze on the Assad regime and a compare-and-contrast with the example of Libya 2011.
The conversation begins at the 30:00 mark.
