DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:50 P.M.) – A large number of civilians living in jihadist-held east Aleppo managed to escape the militants to reach a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) checkpoint at the eastern sector of the Hanano District, a military officer told Al-Masdar News on Saturday.

“Over 150 civilians reached our first military post in the Hanano District after the latest Tiger Forces advance today,” the officer added.

A large wave of civilians fled the jihadist rebels earlier this morning, once the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces seized more than 75 percent of the Hanano District.

In addition to the civilians fleeing the Hanano District, a large number of residents managed to evade the jihadist rebels in Jabal Badro and reach the Syrian Arab Army’s front-lines.

As the battle for east Aleppo intensifies, several civilians will attempt to escape the jihadist rebels in order to flee the war-zone that they have been trapped in for nearly two months.

Stopping civilians to flee a war-zone is a war crime, thus, the so-called “moderate rebels” in east Aleppo are war criminals. In fact, they should even help their evacuation from the war-zone! See chapter IV, art.58 and around of the Hague Convention for details. BTW, while challenging some propaganda about Aleppo, this should be pointed in the face of some Kirby, Kerry, Lister, Röpcke and other professional liars. This should also be reminded at the UN or the fact that an hospital with snipers on the roof is no more protected by the convention, that a field or improvised hospital… Read more »

While the infamous “Muhaysni calls on Turkey to intervene militarily in Syria to defeat the regime” https://twitter.com/walid970721/status/802516686616326144 It seems he’s beginning to feel the heat. Why Turkish army doesn’t attack SAA? Because it would also mean attacking Russia, idiot! And well, remember your friends in Qaeda getting kicked in a Golan offensive a few months ago. These idiots imagined that because Israelis borderguards are arab-muslims (yuuup!) and mad them have medical treatment, calling Israel for help would work so they sent the same kind of desperate message. My dear Muhaysni, you’re a dead man walking : Turkey won’t come to… Read more »
