Video: Football returns to Aleppo after five years

Syria is rebuilding eastern Aleppo following the recent liberation of the strategic city from the grip of Takfiri terror groups.

Now for the first time in five years, football has returned to the City with al-Ittihad and al-Hurriya teams lining up against each other in a local derby in front of their fans.\n\nThe atmosphere was just electric with a large crowd of exhilarated spectators watching the match at Ria-yat al-Shabab stadium on Saturday.\n\nAt the end, 6-time Syrian champions Ittihad managed to beat their city rivals 2-1. The return of football to Aleppo could lay the ground for a quicker resumption of the national football league.\n\n(Source: PressTV News Videos YouTube channel)
