**FILE** A Syrian man turns on the oven Oct. 14, 2012, at his bakery shop on the outskirts of Aleppo, Syria. The Aleppo rebellion started off in the rural areas of Aleppo province, not in the city as was the case in most other parts of Syria. Until this day, all of Aleppo's rebel-held areas are poor, while the city's affluent parts remain under government control with life there reportedly continuing much as it had before. Regime forces punish the city daily with artillery and airstrikes. Civilians are killed and wounded while standing on breadlines, walking the streets or watching television at home.
