Syrian Rebels Deal to Flee From Aleppo as truce Begins

Published On:December 14, 2016, 1:29 pm

Military action has come to an end in eastern Aleppo, Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vitaly Churkin stated.

Churkin stated that Syrian government soldiers have once again established control over the last areas of the city held by rebels. He mentioned that appropriate arrangements had been made for the rebellious fighters to exit. For which, the rebels confirmed the deal, however said civilians would also be allowed to leave.

The newest developments could bring to an end more than four years of barbarous combat in which many lives have been sacrificed. The Syrian rebels had reached the smallest areas of the city in recent months in a huge government offensive supported by Russia air power.

It has been observed that it had trusted proof that in four areas around 82 civilians were killed, further adding that many more might have died. The US and the UN stated that Syrian government and its allies Iran and Russia were responsible for any mayhem happened in the city. For this, the Russian authorities said that such accusations were very untrue.

Mr. Churkin told the emergency session of the UN Security Council, "According to the latest information that we received in the last hour, military actions in eastern Aleppo are over." He further added, "The civilians, they can stay, they can go to safe places, they can take advantage of the humanitarian arrangements that are on the ground. Nobody is going to harm the civilians."

Rebels suggested that civilians would be included in the hegira. The convulsion of the eastern part of the city by government forces and the crushing of the rebel enclave there constitutes a key information victory for the government of President Bashar al-Assad, which now rules virtually all of the prime population centers of the country.

However, Aleppo which is one of the most populous cities prior to the civil war and the country’s financial centre is a great surprise.

Its captivation corresponds a victory not only for Mr. Assad but also for his Russian and Iranian backers. Aleppo alone might not make a significant difference much on Moscow’s planned chess-board. However, the loss of the rebellious opposition there emphasizes the exclusive turn-around in President Assad’s fortunes. Prior to Russia interfering President Assad was on the ropes, his military power crumbling.
