Activists reported that the city of Aleppo had come “under fresh assault” with several areas of the city under attack, some by helicopter gunships. The Syrian observatory reported that 130 people were killed across the country
 on Wednesday, including 26 people in Aleppo. Meanwhile, Iran is planning a foreign-ministers summit, which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said would be a gathering of countries with “a correct and realistic position on the
 conflict.” Iran’s foreign minister said that 12 or 13 countries from Asia, Africa, and Latin America will attend, but declined to name them. Critics of the summit say it is a meeting of countries that are already close
 to the Syrian regime.
