Intense battles broke out this morning between government troops and rebels forces in the insurgent-held districts of Aleppo as an evacuation deal agreed on earlier collapsed.

According to a military source, rebel fighters holed up in Salaheddine and Sayf Al-Dawla districts violated the agreement with the Syrian authorities and attacked army troops, before their offensive was repelled by government forces.

Meanwhile, rebel rocket shelling on government-held districts in the city’s west killed at least 6 civilians and wounded scores others.

A convoy of green buses provided by the Syrian government arrived today early morning at the agreed-on place to initiate the evacuation process. However, it was shot at by rebel fighters who took advantage of the ceasefire to regroup themselves.

Yesterday, Turkish and Russian officials have agreed on a ceasefire whereby civilians as well as militants with their families be evacuated from the districts they control.

However, the deal collapsed as the real numbers exceeded 15,000 people, including 4000 fighters, mostly from Jabhet Fateh al-Sham and other extremist groups.

In a related context, a Syrian official source told the pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV Channel that any deal about Aleppo can never be concluded without an inclusive overview of the military and humanitarian situation in other areas.

Where are those who defended the truce to evacuate and help civilians to be safe?
As long as the Syrian army does not release Allepo by completely crushing all those terrorist cockroaches at once, no civilian will ever be safe from those malevolent animals.
How ingenious Rusian is to still accede to these useless truces by the pressure of the treacherous and wordless American liars, knowing that the terrorists and their sponsors only will use it to regroup, supply and strengthening themselves and prolonging the suffering of the same people they want to rescue and to help.

Resupply and strengthen themselves how? They’re still completely encircled. No weapons, ammo, or reinforcements have gotten to them.

There will always be a way to resupply and strengthen themselves with so many sponsors.
If not, why do you think they changed their minds and attacked the Syrian army and killed several civilian today?
I do not think the rockets and bullets they used for that purpose were toys.
Taking into account that a day before they agreed to surrender because they left without more options to defend themselves.

The question is not how, but when and by whom.
Because it is already a fact that they have achieved it.
How? One example of many other.
There are hundred of tunel craft red dug and hidden in all Syria including Allepo, some one already discovered and many to be discovered. All of them has always served for that purpose.
Don’t be ingenious. There are so many way to achieve it my friend.

“Because it is already a fact that they have achieved it.”

Is it? All I see is that they’ve resumed fighting, not that they’ve gotten ammo or reinforcements.

“Don’t be ingenious.”

Yeah, wouldn’t want to be intelligent, now would we?

Find out more information about the fighting that is being fought right now in Allepo on the few English and Arabic news websites that even report objectively and with the truth and you will know what I am talking about, my friend. And it should be noted that until yesterday everyone had already finished the conquest of Allepo. So we do not have to be genious to deduce the cause of the sudden return of the warlike capacity of some terrorists already defeated without food or ammunition after a pause of a day or two from the Syrian army.

US play poker, Russians are giving them a chess lesson. There are things that go much further than just military action for Russians. It’s on international equilibrium. Actually, they’re not an enemy for the USA but USA have to understand how they totally mislead themselves in totally toxic actions.

Hudaybayyah lasted 2 years when 10 years of pace were supposed to be enforced, well, how many hours did it lasted? What a bunch of punks! Some even managed to contact an Imam as they wanted to kill their families to charge it on the government, seems a good hundred suicides already happened and some killed their families. It’s the führer’s bunker at macro scale. It’s time to stop manufacturing Captagon, it makes them totally bonkers!
