Aleppo has not seen any Russian or Syrian air raids for a week, creating the necessary conditions for a humanitarian pause to work, the Russian Ministry of Defense said, adding that terrorists in the eastern part of the city still hold civilians hostage.
Russophobic rants by some European Union leaders and their willful distortion of events in Syria is a reflection of why the 28-member bloc is careering toward disaster. We are witnessing a crisis of appallingly inept leadership.
Islamist rebels, encouraged by Western media coverage, continue fighting and shelling near the humanitarian corridor keeping Aleppo’s civilians hostage. Experts say they’re witnesses to what is going on in the city and the rebels don’t want it told.
