Heavy Russian and government airstrikes in the city and northern countryside, a Kurdish advance towards Tal Rifaat, countryside advances by government and allied forces and opposition shelling of western Aleppo killed, injured, and displaced numerous civilians. These attacks also damaged infrastructure, including the thermal station east of Aleppo that generates electricity for the city and an MSF-sponsored hospital in Azaz.
