Aleppo Residents Burn Tires to Obstruct Warplanes

Residents in Aleppo’s besieged eastern districts turned to burning tires on Sunday, July 31, to create a “smoke curtain” against warplanes, according to Syrian activists. Parts of the city have come under heavy bombardment in recent days with the Syrian Army surrounding rebel-held eastern areas.
