The continuing offensive by the Syrian regime to capture the rest of the eastern side of the city has led to the capture of about 75% of the rebel-held area. But the regime’s swift advances in the past few days have raised many questions about what impact the fall of Aleppo will have on the broader Syrian conflict.
