#3 Per reports, there are some kurdish neighborhoods in the North suburbs of Aleppo and these have been siding with the govt in the latest round of heavier fighting.
Also, today the govt took back a large portion of the Salaheddin district.
Although the rebels haven't said so, I think part of their plan is to use the chaos of the fighting so that they might get some more chances to take weapons from less well guarded govt depots and maybe get some more govt troops to desert.
otherwise, the strategy doesn't seem so smart
