Thousands of civilians have fled militant-held areas of Aleppo city amid the ongoing advance of government forces in the area.
About 1,700 civilians had fled to government-held parts of western Aleppo over the past 24 hours and about 2,500 to the Kurdish-controlled area of Sheikh Maksoud, according to the so-called “Syrian Observatory of Human Rights”, a pro-militant ‘non-government’ organization aimed to cover the Syrian conflict.
Earlier today, Syrian state television broadcasted images of a crowd of civilians including women and children gathered around green buses that are set to pick them up in Masaken Hanano.
Meanwhile, pro-militant media outlets say that the “opposition” is consolidating their positions in Sakhur to oppose government forces’advance.
