Civilians Exit Aleppo After Take Over By TroopsFeatured, Latest News, News Saturday, December 10th, 2016
BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Civilians are leaving in drove in the rebel-held, eastern parts of Aleppo, Syria.
Russia says amid a push by the troops to regain control of the whole city, about 50,000 civilians have fled the rebel enclave over the past two days.
Over 1,000 rebels had laid down their arms as pro-government forces close in.
In the meantime, western powers have renewed calls for Syria and its ally – Russia, to allow people to leave Aleppo.
The call was contained in a statement at a meeting of officials from the US, Europe, and some Arab countries.
US Secretary of State Mr. John Kerry, who attended the talks in Paris, said: “Russia and Syrian President Bashir al-Assad have a moment where they are in a dominant position to show a little grace.”
