This video was shared by a pro-opposition media inside Aleppo and is described as showing ceasefire violations in besieged Aleppo. The media group has many reporters across Aleppo city and province. The person speaking in the video says that he’s filming just after strikes hit the Saif Dawla neighborhood. Smoke can be seen rising in the distance.

“Aleppo is a ghost city,” he says.
