MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia launched its humanitarian operation in Aleppo on July 28. Three humanitarian corridors were opened in the city surrounded by Damascus-led forces, but held by radical groups. Moscow has pledged to deliver food and provide medical assistance to locals. Approximately 14 tons of humanitarian aid were delivered in the first three days of the operation.
"During the past 24 hours, no a single civilian was able to leave the eastern and southern districts of Aleppo. Terrorists are obstructing the movement of people along humanitarian corridors. All approaches to these are being mined and are shelled with artillery. Three civilians who today tried to leave the Karm al-Qasr to join their relatives, who live on territory controlled by the Syrian government, were detained and executed by the militants," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.
