Damascus Rejects UN Peace Proposal, Continues Assault on Syrian Rebels


The government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has rejected a United Nations proposal to create an “autonomous zone” east of Aleppo, saying it infringes on Syrian sovereignty. Government forces backed by Russia continued bombarding rebel-held eastern Aleppo on Sunday. Rebel fighters shelled government controlled districts of the city, with casualties reported on both sides. VOA's Zlatica Hoke has more.
