Shortly after the outbreak of the Syrian revolution turned war, a gruesome battle started to rage in the ancient city of Aleppo.

Government and rebel forces dug in various neighbourhoods, waging a war of attrition, often using sharp shooters.

Especially government snipers west of the old town were terrorising the citizens, turning their every day movements into a lethal game.

These are short fragments of that time.
