Aleppo’s main shopping area welcomed customers once again as it reopened for the first time in two years on Saturday. The Al-Tall street market was closed after armed groups targeted it with missiles, but it has now reopened in light of the Syrian government’s late-December announcement that declared eastern Aleppo to be completely liberated from terrorists and militants. Aleppo was Syria’s industrial and financial center prior to the conflict.
