Terrorists Seize People’s Food Supply in Eastern Aleppo
“On the third day of the humanitarian paused in Aleppo, the Fatah al-Sham arrested and assassinated a popular leader who called on militants to lay down arms and enter peace with government and urged people to leave the city as soon as possible,” sources in the Eastern parts of the city said.
In the meantime, more civilians in Eastern Aleppo called on international organizations to help them leave Aleppo.
“People in the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo face very bad situation. The terrorists groups take by force their food supplies and money and beat them,” one of residents said.
Fatah al-Sham and Ahrar al-Sham terrorists prevent the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) mission from evacuating the wounded from the Eastern districts of the Syrian city of Aleppo, a Geneva source familiar with the situation told RIA Novosti of Saturday.
“The ICRC has been trying to convince the representatives of the key armed groups (al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham) to allow access to Eastern Aleppo to evacuate the wounded. There are hundreds of injured. The militants set a condition for giving access (to the area), (they) demand medical supplies and medical treatment of militants,” the source added.
The Russian and Syrian governments agreed to stop airstrikes on terrorists controlling parts of Aleppo starting Thursday to ensure the safe evacuation of unarmed militants, and civilians from Eastern Aleppo via eight designated corridors.
The Russian General Staff said that the humanitarian pause in Aleppo was extended for one day, from 08:00 to 16:00 local time on October 22.
