An urgent call today, by the Syrian and Russian government upon so-called rebels to lay down their weapons.
Russia and Syria are launching a large-scale, far-reaching humanitarian operation for Aleppo residents, Russia’s Defense Ministry said. Corridors for civilians and militants ready to lay down arms will be created to exit the city, which was Syria’s largest before the war.
“We have repeatedly called on the warring parties to reconcile, but the militants violated the silence mode each time, shelled villages, attacked the positions of government troops. As a result, a tough humanitarian situation has developed in the city of Aleppo and its suburbs,” Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Thursday.
“To assist civilians taken hostage by terrorists, as well as militants who chose to lay down their weapons, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties, together with Syrian authorities, will open three humanitarian corridors there,” Shoigu added.
According to the minister, the fourth corridor for the passage of fighters in Aleppo is being set up only because the US has not provided Russia with data on the al-Nusra Front terrorist group, which has recently been attempting to merge with other armed opposition groups in Syria.
Russia is still expecting to receive data on the whereabouts of the moderate opposition in Syria, Shoigu noted.
Syria’s General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said that units of the armed forces and allied fighters carried out successful operations in Aleppo’s northern areas and managed to cut off all supply lines and corridors used by terrorists to transfer militants, weapons and munitions to the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo.
The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced on Wednesday that as part of the plan to restore security and stability to Aleppo city, units of the Armed Forces in cooperation with supporting forces carried out their military tasks successfully in areas north of Aleppo, cutting off all supply lines and corridors that terrorists had been using to transfer mercenaries, weapons, and munitions to the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo city.
The General Command asserted its keenness on the safety and security of all citizens, calling on them to cooperate with the Syrian Arab Army to contribute to the cessation of combat and to restoring calm, services, and normal life to Aleppo city.
Aleppo was a very beautiful city before the war, the terrorist destroyed it by their so-called uprising and its heartbreaking to see the city, rockets are being fired every day on Aleppo residents.
The last hope for Aleppo is coming and soon it will be in control of the Syrian government again, thanks to the help of Russia.
