Reporter Jenan Moussa of the Dubai-based Al Aan TV was in the Syrian city of Aleppo today as troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad’s regime clashed with rebels. Moussa tweeted her reactions to the fierce fighting that included helicopter strafing and airstrikes by Syrian fighter jets.

I hear now one, two, three, actually 4 explosions. Welcome to #Aleppo city. #Syria @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

Road to #Aleppo was stressy. We were with small #FSA convoy. I was scared we would be hit by #Assad planes. But all went ok. @akhbar #Syria

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

In #Aleppo, I went 2 various neighborhoods now under control of #FSA. Many barricades on road. Tank, buses, burned cars everywhere. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

Civilians I spoke to in #Aleppo terrified. Shelling seems 2 b indiscriminate in some neighborhoods. Refugees in cars escaping war. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

On streets we met #FSA fighters. Saw some checkpoints. Majority of houses intact. Destruction varies from a neighborhood 2 another. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

#FSA fighters control many neighborhoods here in #Aleppo. #Assad also controls some neighborhoods. Clashes continue in Salahuddine. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

When I entered makeshift hospital here in #Aleppo, I saw 2 injured. Ambulance arrived with 2 new injured. One died in front of us. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

In hospital here in #Aleppo, doctor complained to me lack of medication as an #FSA soldier stood close by crying his fallen comrade. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

I saw a bleeding man on hospital floor here in #Aleppo screaming from pain, pointing at his cellphone. Says 'pls call my family.' @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

This is the man who was shot, begged friends 4 cellphone 2 contact family. Scared 2 die without saying goodbye. http://t.co/8rGvOG4e @akhbar

In hospital in #Aleppo, I saw a female among fighters. Hands covered in blood of fallen comrade. She's only female fighter here. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

Male fighters in #Aleppo told me female fighter is very courageous. Sometimes more courageous than men. She refused to b on camera. @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

I can now hear in distance blast of cannons of #Assad army. Within few seconds I hear loud explosions. Scary. #Aleppo @akhbar

— Jenan Moussa (@jenanmoussa) August 8, 2012

Explosions getting near. No worries yet. I'll keep my shoes on just in case we have to run. #Aleppo @akhbar
