In the evening on December 20, the Syrian city of Aleppo remained in an atmosphere of celebration of the victory over Islamists. Thousands of people gathered on the streets of the city and at the university in order to mark the liberation and the beginning of the Christmas holidays. Christians and Muslims, gathered together, turned on lights on a Christmas tree, a brass band played, people chanted slogans, sang and danced.

Meanwhile, the situation in the areas, which until recently were under the control of Islamists, remains ambiguous. The most part of media reported about evacuation of the last group of militants from Aleppo on December 19, but the declared number of evacuated people shows that militants still can be in the city. There is a bit amount of them, but they can be there.

Information about this almost does not get in media. However, on December 20, the Syrian SANA state news agency reported, citing some own sources, that the evacuation of the last group of terrorists and their families is delayed due to disagreements between militant groups. The fact that on December 20, several shots were fired on al-Kallyasa district, located in the heart of Aleppo, is another indirect confirmation of the presence of Islamists somewhere in al-Ansari Mashhad district.

In any case, radical Islamists certainly remain in Aleppo. During the start of the celebration, a bomb exploded nearby. There was nobody next to the scene of the explosion, so nobody was hurt. But the fact of the explosion shows that terrorists will continue to try to destabilize the situation in the city again. Syrian police and intelligence services still will have a lot of work here.

Militants in the south-western outskirts of Aleppo also do not ‘sit quietly’. In the morning and afternoon on December 20, Islamists from the vicinity of Al-Rashidin district several times opened fire on positions of the government forces, stationed in the area of the 1070 Apartment Project, the Al-Hikma School, and even Al-Sukkari district, recaptured just the day before.

    Well so much for the MSM LIES that Muslims and Christians “hate” each other… More propaganda by these criminal liars and our governments

    • Hisham Saber

      I am a sunni Muslim ,and I have nothing but joy in my heart for the heroic Syrian people. Whatever their religion.

      Also, you should see the beautiful things the Quran says about Jesus and Mary.

      • Catfish

        I’m a unitarian Christian myself but completely agree about the Quran and how highly Jesus and Mary are regarded in it. Real Christians and real Muslims are naturally allies unless they are ignorant of each others beliefs and or have been misled by those who would twist religion to fit their agendas and use it to control others. All three Abrahamic religions seem to have at least one group claiming to hold their beliefs but don’t seem to when judged by their actions. I’ve read the english translation of the Quran and even have my own copy. One thing I’m still not clear about on Islam is if the Quran is the only book considered holy or are others such as the sunnah? The sunnah seems to me to be a biography on the life of Mohammed but I haven’t fully read it yet.

    I must say, that I’m really glad for the Syrian people in Aleppo, that their suffering is over and that soon, all the people of Syria will live in peace and harmony with each other, regardless of their religion, Christian or Muslim,Suni or Shia. One big congratulations to all of you, and God bless you all!

    Meanwhile in Berlin people are asked to stay indoors. Funny how proxy war in Syria can turn real war at home in a blink of an eye. Merry Xmass Aleppo.

  • SnowCatzor

    I eagerly await CNN’s report on this.

    • Barba_Papa

      It doesn’t fit their narrative, so be prepared to wait for it for a looooooooong time

  • SOF

    Well done and merry X’mas Aleppo.

    The rewards of being on the right side of history: 3rd image of the series showing Putin, Assad and Iran’s leader side by side.

    • Hisham Saber

      That’s not Iran’s leader. That’s Sayed Nasrallah. the leader of Lebanese Hezbollah. We must not forget about the heroic Hezbollah fighters who lay their lives on the line for righteousness and humanity.

      • SOF

        Agreed, they are the real warriors against terror.

  • Cairo_Commander

    On behalf of all Egyptians, congratulations on freeing Aleppo! May 2017 be the year of victory for the Syrian people over terrorism
