The bombardment of will continue till the time opposition rebel fighters remain in the Syrian city, Russia’s foreign minister has said a day after pledging to halt combat operations to allow civilians to leave.
Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said, “After a humanitarian pause [the strikes] have resumed and will continue for as long as the bandits are still in Aleppo.” He told this on Friday at a meeting of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.
Aleppo’s east already surrounded by the hostiles came under heavy attacks on Thursday night and throughout Friday despite Lavrov’s claims of a humanitarian pause. This has also raised questions about the Kremlin’s commitment to a ceasefire deal and its leverage over Bashar al-Assad.
The residents of east have been noted saying that a number of neighbourhoods had been subjected to relentless bombardment, including rocket attacks, bombings and gunfire.
“Bombing never stops,” said Abdulkafi al-Hamdo, a teacher in east Aleppo, in a text message.
UN’s human rights office, on Friday has also shown concerns regarding the fate of the civilians who left rebel-held areas, and says that hundreds of men who left those areas of eastern had gone missing after they crossed into regime controlled districts.
