People in Northern Aleppo Call for Dispatch of Humanitarian Aid to Besieged Towns
The Northern territories of Aleppo province that are the main corridor for the dispatch of aid cargoes from Turkey to Castillo and then to Aleppo city, were the scenes of demonstration of angry people who called for sending aid convoys to the besieged towns of Foua’a and Kafraya in Idlib province as well as several districts of Deir Ezzur city that are all under the siege of the terrorists.
Angry people warned that they will not allow any aid cargo to pass through their regions if the international bodies do not pay attention to the besieged civilians in Foua’a and Kafraya and Deir Ezzur.
Terrorist groups are not allowed to deploy forces near Castillo road and their today’s movement near the road is not normal.
Reports said on Thursday that the Russian marines would officially replace the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” along the strategic Castello highway in Northern Aleppo to monitor the movement of humanitarian aid convoys.
The Syrian army agreed to withdraw 1 km North of the Castello Highway in order to allow humanitarian aid groups, including the Syrian Red Crescent Society, to have access to the roadway.
Field sources earlier confirmed that the Syrian forces had also left certain regions near Handarat refugee camp.
In addition to Russian checkpoints, the Syrian Red Crescent Society would also have two checkpoints along the Castello highway; these would be used to facilitate aid and help civilians trying to leave the besieged regions.
The Russian marines came under fire on Wednesday, when a group of unknown militants fired bullets at the soldiers manning the checkpoints.
The terrorist groups struck the base of the Russian truce-monitoring soldiers along the Castello Road to the Northern districts of Aleppo city on Wednesday.
The Russian soldiers came under fire while delivering a video link to the Russian Defense Ministry in Moscow from Castello Road in Aleppo on Tuesday following a first night of the nationwide ceasefire.
