Following the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) offensive on rebel-held districts in Aleppo, a “humanitarian pause” has now come into effect, thus allowing rebels and civilians to leave eastern Aleppo unscathed.

Russian and Syrian air strikes on Aleppo city have also been halted since Tuesday.

The unilateral truce, announced by Russia, will last until at least 19:00 (16:00 GMT). Eight exit corridors have been designated from the east.

Meanwhile, Islamist rebels have rejected the plan and there are reports of clashes at one of the corridors out of the east.

Our partners from www.SouthFront.org have more on the story:

Russia, those pigs terrorists in Aleppo don’t deserve your mercy. While alive even one of them no civilian may leave nor receive assistance without risking their lives by terrorists hands. Beat and destroy them once at all without break. Because is the only exit for all the Aleppo citizens suffering there.

Killing propaganda can have much more efficient results : by exposing the fact publicly, especially to the UN, Red Cross/Crescant (this is the same organisation in fact!) and WHO goes further than the UNSC : now we’re talking UN general assembly! Remember that the Goebbels principle can only work as long as the people can be sheltered from the truth and moreover, playing again the card of radical islamism as it was done by Reagan can f*****g backfire in the US and is not appreciated at all at the DoD level… If the propaganda is torpedoed, the support for the… Read more »
