Forty-eight women with children left the northern of Syrian city of Aleppo through Russia-negotiated humanitarian corridors, the administration of the city said on July 3.

Fighting in the city intensified in recent days, as terrorists started an offensive aimed at breaking of government cordons. About 250,000 civilians have fear to be trapped in the eastern districts, held by rebels.

According to an official of the Aleppo administration, people used specially-designated corridors through which they fled under heavy fire of terrorists. The official added that crude homemade weapons were used by militants.

“Their accuracy is very low but in place of munitions they are using gas canisters filled with metal projectiles – nails, screws and bolts. Blasts can be heard every 5-10 minutes in different parts of Aleppo,” the source said.

Last week, Damascus and Moscow had launched a large-scale humanitarian operation in Aleppo and opened three escape corridors for civilians and one for terrorists, who decided to lay down arms.

The figures presented above show that the evacuation of civilians is not completely successful. The process becomes more complicated due to heavy fighting in the city and near it.
