Aleppo – liberated or fallen ?

The power has shifted in most parts of the Syrian city of Aleppo from the hands of anti Assad forces to Assad.  Should it be called as “Aleppo fallen to Assad regime” or ” Aleppo liberated by government forces ” ?

How it is termed depends on from which angle you view the Syrian civil war. Some feel anti Assad forces are hard line Islamists and are more dangerous, while others feel Assad regime is brutally violent on its citizen and has no legitimacy.
