All hell is expected to break loose in Aleppo city shortly after local rebel factions refused to evacuate or let any civilians leave besieged rebel-held districts today. A Russian humanitarian pause ended moments ago which effectively would grant the Russian Air Force the green light by the Kremlin to bomb insurgents hiding in the city again.

Pamphlets distributed in eastern Aleppo reveal militant groups would only allow residents to exit into government-held Aleppo if they paid 60,000 Syrian pounds (roughly 300 dollars) to “support the Mujahideen”. With unemployment rampant due to war, hardly any civilians are able to afford the payment, effectively reducing them to human shields.

Earlier today, unknown rebel factions shelled a humanitarian corridor checkpoint in the northern part of Aleppo, injuring two Russian military personnel at the Castello road:

Russian drones also observed militants using the temporal ceasefire to re-mobilize their eastern Aleppo forces in anticipation of an upcoming offensive by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). The footage below shows an machine-gun manned pickup truck moving around in broad daylight:

Other footage captured by a Russian drone showed Islamist rebels attending a funeral in the Bustan Bashra district:

Meanwhile, on the western Aleppo frontline – which was not part of today’s 10-hour Russian ceasefire – another Russian drone directed SAA artillery crews to shell a militant pickup truck at the 1070 Apartment Project:

What are these retarded fighting for ? If they want “democracy” why don’t they ask for elections ? But, if you tell me that a sunni want democracy, I can just laught. Where did you see a sunni democracy in the world ? Where ?

They are dying and have destroyed their country for absolutely NOTHING. The best they can have with their “rebellion” is to become USA puppets. Such stupid people. They have freedom and they kill to be colonized by the country that are helping to genocide their brothers in Palestine.

Can’t make more stupid people.

They don’t want democracy at all! They want Sharia and Caliphate! USA puppets? Hey, Kerry can’t even tell them into a ceasefire to have humanitarian aid pass to civilians! The US are less implied than you think! Money comes from Qatar and KSA, Turkey is serious part of the plot. KSA and Qatar did a pay to play with the Clinton Foundation, Killary simply helped to transfer weapons from Benghazi to Turkey and some Green Berets were sent for training, CIA probably helped to recruit shithadists. It’s more a logistical acting and it’s very likely to hve been all paid… Read more »
