BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:35 A.M.) – A United Nations report from January 11th confirmed that an estimated 147,000 people were evacuated from east Aleppo last month.

According to the U.N. report, 36,000 people, including rebels, were evacuated from the besieged neighborhoods in the provincial capital to the rebel-controlled areas of Aleppo and Idlib.

Another 110,000 people were evacuated to government-held areas, including the formerly besieged neighborhoods, the U.N. report added.

Of the 110,000 evacuated to the government side, some 50,000 people have returned to their old neighborhoods in east Aleppo, while several still remain inside the western part of the city.
