The Syrian army and allies managed on Monday to regain control over the northern part of Aleppo eastern neighborhood, liberating seized the Sakhur, Haydariya and Sheikh Khodr districts from the terrorists who fled the battlefield.
Syrian Army and allies have also advanced in their operations against positions of Takfiri terrorist organizations and have restored security and stability to the Scientific Research Housings and are continuing to advance in the Youth Housings area in eastern Aleppo as terrorists’ ranks collapse.
More than 3,000 civilians have left the eastern part of the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo in the last 24 hours, the Russian Center for Reconciliation said. It later reported that about 40 percent (20 out of 45 square kilometers) of the militant-held part of the city has been liberated.
Some 3,179 people, including 1,519 children – among them 138 newborn babies – have left Eastern Aleppo through the ‘humanitarian corridors’ set up by Syrian government forces, Russian Reconciliation Center said on Monday.
The center reported that 12 neighborhoods, comprising roughly 40 percent of the territory previously controlled by the militants, have been cleared.
The operations resulted in killing sores of the terrorists and destroying their weapons, adding that the army units are chasing the fleeing terrorists in the area.
