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:

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?
