BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces have captured approximately 95 percent of the rebel-held territory in the eastern pocket of Aleppo, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced on Monday.

This announcement comes just hours after the Syrian Arab Army and their allies, primarily Liwaa Al-Quds (Palestinian paramilitary) and Desert Hawks Brigade), seized the strategic Sheikh Sa’eed District at the southern corridor of the east Aleppo pocket.

All that remains left to capture for the Syrian Arab Army and their allies are the Sukkari and Bustan Al-Qasir districts; however, these sites are problematic for the government forces because of the civilian presence around the jihadist rebels.

According to the Reuters News Agency, the Russian and U.S. delegations have proposed a surrender deal to the Syrian opposition that would allow for the remaining civilians and some 2,200 militants to be safely escorted from east Aleppo to the ‘Anadan Plains.

No response has been given by the Syrian opposition as of yet, but they will likely have no choice but to surrender due to the scarcity of provisions and their poor military positions.

With such massive pressure in Palmyra and the necessity of using all available forces to stop them, the SAA simply cannot allow 2000+ militants to go to Idlib and lead assaults that would further distract away from Palmyra.
