|Syrian forces make gains in Aleppo as diplomatic efforts stall|
Syrian forces continue to make gains in the rebel-held areas of Aleppo.
It comes as rival UN resolutions to end the bombing of the besieged city failed.
Al-Oweija district was the latest to fall to troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.
Since the ceasefire collapsed two weeks ago, regime forces are advancing street by street into the eastern part of the city, under rebel control since 2012.
