BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 A.M.) – The nationwide evacuations that were set to take place in the Aleppo, Damascus, and Idlib governorates on Sunday were postponed to a later date due to security concerns, a military source told Al-Masdar News last night.

Militants from Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) destroyed several buses on Sunday that were attempting to travel to the besieged towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya from the Turkish border; this forced the Syrian government to call off evacuations until further notice.

Despite the postponement, the Syrian government still allowed a number of buses to leave eastern Aleppo after they received confirmation that the road was clear of any security concerns.

Several buses still remain immobile in the towns of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, as they await approval from the government to transport the wounded and sick from the area.

Frankly, better ask the Russians to send their huge Mil Mi-26 chopper : hey, there’s room inside for 90ppl or 60 stretchers or 20t cargo :

It’s a little like a C-130 made chopper!
Well, I doubt that one of the two Mil Mi-V12 prototype which is exposed in a museum is still flyable but it’d be even nicer : 40t payload :
