The Syrian government forces have regained full control over 98 percent of Aleppo territory, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation stated Tuesday.

"Over the past 24 hours, Syrian government forces have liberated 11 districts of the eastern part of Aleppo from terrorists. Thus, the Syrian authorities have regained control of over 98 percent of the territory of the city of Aleppo. The area controlled by militants in eastern Aleppo does not exceed 3 square kilometers," the statement said.
