Rebel forces load rocket-propelled grenade rounds on the first day of a Syrian government military offensive against rebels of the Free Syrian Army in the rebel-held district of Salahudin in Aleppo, Syria, on July 28, 2012. Syrian security forces have reinforced their presence in Aleppo with 80 tanks and rebels have brought in hundreds of fighters from villages in northern Syria in preparation for the showdown in Syria's second city and commercial hub.
