Aleppo, Syria (5:30 A.M.) – On Wednesday night, the Syrian Armed Forces and jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) agreed to a humanitarian ceasefire that will last for three hours everyday, beginning this Friday.

Facilitated by the Russian reconciliation committee, the humanitarian ceasefire will allow for food, water, and other necessities to be delivered to the besieged neighborhoods of east Aleppo.

The humanitarian ceasefire proposal was discussed by representatives from each side this week put; however, it will not end the wide-scale battle that is currently ripping through the provincial capital of the Aleppo Governorate.

Civilians in east Aleppo will also have the opportunity to leave their besieged neighborhoods during this three-hour ceasefire; if they choose.

Another stupid decision. Followed by rebel victories. Watch this space.
