ALEPPO, SYRIA (4:10 P.M.) – Negotiations to surrender the rebel-held east Aleppo pocket have begun between the Syrian Arab Army’s High Command and Islamist groups, a local source told Al-Masdar News on Wednesday afternoon.
The two parties are currently negotiating the possible exit of all Islamist groups from east Aleppo, via the contested Bustan Al-Qasir District.
If the Islamist groups agree to the terms offered in today’s negotiations, the Syrian Armed Forces will be in full-control of some east Aleppo neighborhoods.
While the Syrian Armed Forces have found some rebel groups to negotiate with, large Islamist factions like Harakat Nouriddeen Al-Zinki and Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) refuse to speak to the government and their Russian allies.
