DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 A.M.) – Dozens of civilians in east Aleppo took to the streets of Bustan Al-Qasr on Tuesday to protest the jihadist rebels withholding aid from the exhausted people.
Based on the video footage released on Tuesday, the protesters were forced to disperse from the streets of Bustan Al-Qasr after the jihadist rebels opened fire on them.
The Bustan Al-Qasr District was one of the Russian military’s primary humanitarian aid corridors to the besieged neighborhoods of east Aleppo.
Most civilians in east Aleppo have been blocked by the jihadist rebels from leaving their besieged neighborhoods, with some people being forced to pay large sums of money to cross over to the government side of the provincial capital.
The U.S. and its western allies have blamed the Syrian government for the dire humanitarian crisis in east Aleppo; however, the latter has repeatedly attempted to deliver aid to the people, alongside their Russian counterparts.
