Syria war: Aleppo self-rule plan rejected by government

A proposition for peace was written up in an attempt to settle some of the conflict in the war ravaged Syria this week, and ultimately ended up being unsuccessful. The agreement would mean rebel fighting forces would withdraw from eastern Aleppo under the conditions that they are allowed to hold on to the territory. The call for peace comes after a school was hit by rebel forces, killing eight children in the area. Reports of chemical weapons being used by rebel forces have also come in, complicating matter even more. A total of 32 people were either injured or killed in these attacks. The rejection of the treaty by the Syrian government was justified by officials stating that it would be insane for them to leave their people held hostage by some 6,000-7,000 potential jihadi gunmen.
