Free Syrian Army (FSA) destroyed five tanks of al-Assad regime's army in Aleppo on Saturday.
Abu Ahmad al-Halabi, a commander of FSA, said that there was a war going on between FSA --set up by opponents-- and the army of al-Assad regime.
Noting that three soldiers of FSA were killed during the clashes, al-Halabi said that fierce explosions happened in Salah al-Din neighborhood of Aleppo, and there was a real war going on between the two armies.
Earlier on Saturday, Syrian army, which has been dispatching tanks and soldiers along Aleppo border for days, has attacked Salah al-Din and Sikari neighborhoods with tanks and heavy armors.
Tens of tanks have been dispatched in Salah al-Din neighborhood, and they bombed the neighborhood randomly destroying and damaging many houses, said al-Halabi.
Meanwhile, FSA seized the control of the office of Baath Party in the city.
People started to leave the city due to operations.
