Warplanes pounded rebel-held areas north of the Syrian city of Hama in an escalation of air strikes as government forces fought to reverse the insurgents’ biggest assault in months. The Syrian army was conducting attack operations in the area and had seized the initiative back from the rebels.

Rebel groups, spearheaded by jihadist insurgents from the former al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front but also including Free Syrian Army (FSA) groups, launched their attack on government-held areas near Hama last week.
