Syrian and Allied Forces Liberating Eastern Aleppo One Neighborhood After Another
by Stephen Lendman
Significant progress is being made, almost half of eastern Aleppo liberated, according to Russia’s reconciliation center. In the last 24 hours alone, 14 neighborhoods were liberated, thousands of civilians able to breathe free for the first time in years.
Syrian forces have full control over eastern Aleppo’s northern districts, one after the other liberated, US-supported terrorist elements routed, forced to retreat, surrender or die.
Reports indicate over 3,000 buildings cleared from their infestation, Syrian and allied forces now targeting areas they still control. Fierce fighting continues.
According to Russian Defense Ministry spokesman General Igor Konashenkov, Washington and its rogue allies oppose efforts to free eastern Aleppo from terrorists’ control – urging imposition of new sanctions on Moscow for aiding Syria’s liberating struggle.
On Sunday, Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al-Thani, part of the family-run dictatorship, said his regime will continue aiding terrorists in Syria regardless of US policy under Trump.
The Saudis, Turkey and Israel aren’t likely to cease regime change aims. It remains to be seen how NATO countries react if Trump allies with Russia in combating terrorists. Will Britain, France, Germany and other member states join him or go their own way?
According to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergy Ryabkov, “(t)he Russian side for the last several weeks, practically alone, without support, has been alleviating the situation for residents of (Aleppo) by delivering appropriate humanitarian aid.”
International aid groups haven’t done their job, likely pressured by Washington to abstain, despite their ability to help relieve human suffering.
