ALEPPO, Syria, — Three Kurdish women have been killed in the ongoing assault on the city of Aleppo by Syrian troops. It is understood the three women were from the same family, Firat news agency reported

The assault on Syrian second city has been going on for almost a week, causing several casualties also among the big Kurdish population of the city.

Last Thursday three people died and 11 were wounded when members of the People's Assembly, under the protection of the People's Defence Corps (YPG), were delivering food and aid to the people.

The YPG carried out an attack in retaliation and killed six soldiers of Assad troops.

Over 200 thousand people fled Aleppo

The United Nations have said that over 200,000 people have fled the city of Aleppo, where intense clashes are reported to be continuing.

Valerie Amos, U.N. official for humanitarian affairs, have said in a statement to be "extremely concerned by the impact of shelling and use of tanks and other heavy weapons on people in Aleppo. Many people - she added - have sought temporary shelter in schools and other public buildings in safer areas. They urgently need food, mattresses and blankets, hygiene supplies and drinking water."

Amos said U.N. agencies and the Syrian Red Crescent are working together on supplying those affected by the fighting all over the country with blankets and humanitarian supplies, but many remain out of their reach because of the combat.

Aleppo is Syria’s largest city and commercial hub with about 3 million people living there.
