The latest from rebel-held areas of Aleppo by government forces. Nearing the end of a bloody four-year struggle for control of a key city.
Government forces now control most of the Eastern part of Aleppo, which was retained by the insurgents for 4 years, and there are several reports of the mass executions. The UN said on Tuesday that he had received a message that 82 civilians were shot in the eyes of Pro-government forces on Monday, many died in their homes. The representative of the office of the UN high Commissioner for human rights stated that he had received "deeply disturbing reports" that the bodies lying on the streets in the city, and residents could not get them to intense bombardment from the "fear of being shot on sight." "Overall, as of yesterday evening, we received reports from Pro-government forces have killed at least 82 civilians in four different areas."
According to them, 11 women and 13 children were among the dead. The Syrian government has not commented on the killings in the state media. UN Secretary-General ban Ki-moon expressed concern about "reports of atrocities against large numbers of civilians, including women and children" in his statement. "Stressing that the UN is unable to independently verify these reports, the Secretary-General will convey its serious concern to the relevant parties."
The government already controls the Western part of Aleppo and troops occupied three quarters after their entry to the ground on 27 November, supported by constant air raids. Humanitarian volunteers in Aleppo have issued a desperate plea for help and safe passage to 100 thousand civilians and rebels still trapped in besieged cities.
The bloodshed is due to the fact that the international community failed to find a political solution to the crisis in Aleppo, which became the epicenter of a brutal five-year war in Syria.
