EXC.VIDEO: Drone footage of Aleppo; Syrian Armed Forces seizing Sheikh Sa’eed District in east Aleppo
Drone footage released by Ruptly on Monday night showed Sheikh Saeed after goverment forces seized the district and other areas of rebel-held in east Aleppo.
Sheikh Sa’eed was considered one of the most important sites under jihadist control in east Aleppo prior to its capture on Monday; this was due to its relative size and proximity to the nearby districts of Sukkari and Bustan Al-Qasr.
Following the capture of Sheikh Sa’eed on Monday morning, the Syrian Armed Forces plowed through the remaining jihadist areas, seizing a number of neighborhoods before the Syrian opposition agreed to the terms of surrender.
Jihadist rebels and civilians have begun withdrawing from east Aleppo, per the agreement; however, several militants have refused to leave the area, forcing the Syrian Armed Forces to issue a formal warning.
