Syrian militia on Wednesday refuted claims on alleged arrests of eastern Aleppo citizens by the government forces, saying that solely standard procedures, such as identification and document checking, had been carried out with regard to the civilians.

What Comes Next for Syrian Army After Aleppo's Complete Liberation
DAMASCUS (Sputnik) – Earlier this week, Western media reported that the Syrian army arrested and questioned eastern Aleppo citizens, who were leaving the terrorist-controlled parts of the city.

"Impossible," a militia representative told RIA Novosti, commenting on the claims.

"After the residents of eastern Aleppo were evacuated to safe areas, they were provided with the necessary medical and other types of assistance. Of course, standard procedures of document checking and identification took place, however arrests could not happen."

Earlier this month, the first special operation to evacuate the citizens of eastern Aleppo was held. On Monday, the Russian reconciliation center said that the Syrian army had established complete control over 12 districts of eastern Aleppo, liberating some 40 percent of the region’s territory.

On Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry said that Syrian government forces had freed some 90,000 residents.
