Militants are blocking civilian attempts to leave eastern Aleppo through the humanitarian corridors by planting mines in the nearby streets, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Wednesday.

“Militants are blocking any attempts by the population to leave the city through the especially set up corridors. Mines have been planted in all streets adjacent to them.

The government forces see civilians trying to approach the humanitarian corridors killed by landmines every day,” he said.

Aleppo rallies

Desperate civilians in Syria’s Aleppo attempted to seize a ration depot controlled by terrorists, Russia’s Defense Ministry reports.

“There was an attempt of local citizens to seize a ration depot,” the ministry’s spokesman said.

The spokesman said the citizens demand that the so-called local council stop siphoning off the food supplies and force the militants to leave the city or allow civilians to exit to safe areas in Syria.

Over the past four days more than 1,500 citizens took to the streets in four areas of the city, he said. “All the rallies of civilians were ruthlessly stamped out by the militants.”

Terrorists shot civilians gathered for a rally in Aleppo on Tuesday, killing 27 people and wounding hundreds, Konashenkov noted.

“Yesterday, gunfire was opened on an impromptu rally in the districts of al-Amriya and al-Fardous, killing 27 people and injuring hundreds,” Konashenkov said, adding local residents’ resistance against militants’ terror in eastern Aleppo was on the rise.

“Since the beginning of last week, eleven protests have been reported in Aleppo’s districts controlled by terrorists,” he said.

These are SERIOUS war-crimes! I bet Julian Röpcke or Charles Linster won’t report it but well, they clearly seem to be on some payroll from some GCC countries…
