Militants have shelled an evacuation corridor from the eatern part of Aleppo to the city’s countryside, Syrian state-run TV reported few moments ago.
Rerports say that an incident took place in the Ramouseh neighborhood of Aleppo when a new convoy of buses was ready to leave the city. The Syrian army was sent to the area. The evacuation was temporarly stopped.
“The third convoy of buses [on Friday] was ready to leave when the shelling occurred,” a pro-government media outlet, Al-Ikhbariya, reported.
Pro-militant sources blame the government for the incident. The evacuation road is blocked by pro-government fighters.
Earlier today reports appeared that militants are seeking to take prisoners with them during the evacuation, violating the agreement with the Syrian government.
The evacuation of the remaining Aleppo militants and their families was organized by the Russian reconciliation center in Syria and the Syrian authorities.
Some 3,000 militants have left eastern Aleppo in several convoys since the start of the evacuation operation.
Meanwhile, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and Ahrar al-Sham “opposition groups” stopped evacuation of 4,000 civilians from the government-held villages of Kefraya and Fou’a in the province of Idlib, according to reports.
These villages are besieged by militants and have to be evacuated under the Aleppo agreement.
