Syrian government forces reportedly renewed a military operation in the Syrian city of Aleppo after Jaish al-Fatah and Fatah Halab militant coalitions prevented a high number of civilians from leaving the militant-held area of the city.
The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces and other pro-government groups are now storming few militant-held building in the Shekih Saeed neighborhood and the militant held neighborhood of Sayf Al-Dawla, according to local sources.
Pro-government sources claim that the Syrian army and its allies are set to finish the job.
The operations were renewed few hours ago, after reports started to appear that the so-called “moderate opposition” was preventing civilians from leaving the militan-held area.
By now, these reports have been ingored by the Western media. It’s an obvious fact for Arab-language media outlets:
اﻷمم المتحدة: أنباء عن منع المسلحين فرار المدنيين من شرق #حلب #سكاي_أخبار

Yesterday some 8,461 civilians, including 2,934 children, left militant-held districts of eastern Aleppo, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. BUT all these people left the militan-held area during the active phase of military operations against militants.
Meanwhile, still president of the United States Barack Obama ordered to expand military aid to the so-called “opposition” in Syria.
Amid all these reports, the expert community is quite surprised by a feeble attitude of the Russian Foreign Ministry over the issue. Last night, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced another unilateral ceasefire in Aleppo. “Moderate rebels” just ingored it and Washington announced additional weapon supplies to pro-Al-Qaeda forces.
So, what now?
Good. Teach these warmonger beheaders a lesson the HARD WAY.
Putin is ruining the campaign with his political ‘humanitarian pauses’ It’s necessary to crush the terrorist once and for all
The “humanitarian pauses” are a P.R. ploy. The fact is that military operations are hard to sustain 24/7. Time is needed to rest, rearm, and regroup between operations. Declaring a pause during one of these necessary “slow” periods makes it look like you are being the good guy and if your enemy counterattacks while you’re regrouping, you can blame them for violating your humanitarian truce.
That would make sense. Other than that there is no point with further delay as other garrisons under siege in Idlib, Palmyra and Deir-Ezzor run the risk of being overrun.
The best way to help civilians trapped in a war zone is to get on with the job and move the frontline on. Contrary to what the media seems to think most civilians survive the fighting just fine. Historically disease, starvation, rape and plundering have killed more civilians in wartime then actual combat.
Finish the job, some civilians will unfortunately die, but the vast majority will survive and from then on be spared from further fighting and starvation.
Rusia (Lavrov) must stop making deals with US (Kerry is a Lavrov’s friend). Syrian-russin-iranis-hezbolahs must finish their job in Syria with these pro-terrorists interruptions proposed by US and backed by Rusia,
Lavrov must stop doing stupid deals. !!
As I stated before… FINISH THE JOB AND FINISH OFF THESE BASTARDS!
Considering how the criminal Soetoro regime in Washington is now openly flooding weapons into these fraud US controlled “terrorist” groups in Syria without the direct approval of even the American people, the Syrian government forces have NO choice now but to say “fuck diplomacy” and finish the job of wiping out these pricks…
Heroic Assad and really Syria allies Hezbollah and Iran said a very big f@ck of to Lavrov and to his“lover“.Assad is not a puppet of Kremlin-like Zakharchenko and Plotnitsky.
What does “ingore” mean?
it is a typo… it is actually “ignore”….
“Amid all these reports, the expert community is quite surprised by a feeble attitude of the Russian Foreign Ministry over the issue”
Not sure what “expert community” you are talking about but the facts on the ground are changing faster than this story reports.
The article seems to assume that the Russians are in control. Nothing is happening in east Aleppo without the approval of President Bashar Al-Assad. Remember that Al-Assad continues to tell anyone listening that he is not a puppet of the Russians, which is true. The genius of President Vladimir Putin is his foreign policy approach of non-interference in the internal affairs of a country. That has proved to be a huge draw for other sovereign nation-states.
As Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced the “additional weapon supplies to pro-Al-Qaeda forces” means nothing as regards Aleppo.
From TASS http://tass.com/defense/918123 the battle for east Aleppo is pretty much all over and the US and it’s allies have most likely lost everything. It signals the end of American world hegemony and it’s form of Globalism. Academician Yevgeny Primakov provided the answer to American world hegemony (have Russia ally itself with China), outmaneuvering both Sec. of State Henry Kissinger and National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski. The other major happening was Russia took away Americas’ military technological advantage of being able to fight from afar (think Tomahawk cruise missile) by showing they had a similar capability (response to US bombing of Deir Ez Zor). President Vladimir Putin made it happen, and as such will be considered the most significant leader of the first half of the 21 century. President-elect Donald Trump will help determine what takes it’s place. Such interesting times.
This is a military victory for the Syrians as they did all the fighting with no aerial bombing from the Russians. As such, the Syrians get to determine the conditions for surrender. The Syrians and their allies have reason to be proud of their achievements.
The west Syrian terrorists (mostly Al-Qaeda gangs) have nothing to fight for with the loss of east Aleppo and all of the major Syrian cities. Their ability to recruit and “will to fight” is over.
On to the barbaric/deviant ISIS terrorists.
It is a good day.
I guess God is with the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces. Brave men who fight evil and/or miss-led militants, supported and funded by dark evil forces. My best wishes for their success!
lavrov are risking the life of Russian and Syrian soldiers.Hezbollah and Iran.He behaves like Kerry’s wife.RUssians are not guys if he wants to be a guy he must move to USA.Russia must report back to S yrian government on progress not NATO.Let NATO control its uncontrollable wars in Yemen,Pakistan,Iraq,Lybia And Somalia.Russia does not owe any explanation to NATO.
The United States has long berated other nations as State sponsors of terrorism, yet the United States blatantly arms known jihadist terrorist organisations.
Obama & Kerry needs to face indictment for war crimes. Let us hope Trump keeps his word and steers USA away from engaging in such behaviour.
