On Tuesday afternoon, hundreds of Syrian civilians turned to the streets in the rebel-held Bustan al-Qaser district of besieged eastern Aleppo.

The demonstrators chanted for the removal of corrupt rebel commanders and proceeded to plunder the Yarmouk Aid Centre of its goods and distributed it among the local populace.

Although initially reluctant, local rebel factions attempted to dislodge the protests by firing into the air.

Two weeks ago, the Bustan al-Qaser neighbourhood was struck by infighting as Islamist groups overran several checkpoints held by the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) Fastaqim Union, effectively disbanding the latter group.

Upwards of 200,000 civilians remain besieged in eastern Aleppo while some 9,000 militants have been accused of using local residents as human shields, refusing to allow their evacuation into government-held western Aleppo.

Once people are hungry, you can even be heavily armed, you end swarmed and… Bigots in power always end showing their true face which, how surprising it is, is ALWAYS corrupted!

Not sure I would appreciate anything if I was a Russian, thus, when it comes to foreign politics, he’s probably one of the cleverest persons you may find in world’s leaders. Definitively a powerful mind. And I like how he treated some corporate oligarchs in Russia.
