yria's government helicopters shelled the key city of Aleppo, and nine people were killed on Sunday. Syrian opposition leaders appealed to foreign allies to send heavy weapons to fight President Bashar al-Assad's "killing machine." "The rebels are fighting with primitive weapons.

Meanwhile, neighboring country Jordan has opened its first tent camp for Syrians fleeing the bloody battle.
