IS har rykket frem mot Aleppo og står bare 2 km fra regjeringskontrollert område. Russisk bombing ser ikke ut til å stanse dem, men så har da også de fleste angrepene vært rettet mot anti-Assad-grupper, ikke IS.

Islamic State fighters have seized villages close to the northern city of Aleppo from rival insurgents, a monitoring group said on Friday, despite an intensifying Russian air-and-sea campaign that Moscow says has targeted the militant group.


Islamic State is now within 2 km (1.2 miles) of government-held territory on the northern edge of Aleppo, which has suffered widespread damage and disease during the civil war that erupted in the wake of protests against Assad.
