"Under the decree of Supreme Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Putin, a decision to extend the humanitarian pause for another 24 hours has been made. The extension of the humanitarian pause in Aleppo was supported by the government of Syria", he said.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Assad fighting numerous opposition groups and terrorist organizations such as Daesh and al-Nusra Front. Since the war's beginning it has claimed lives of thousands of people and displaced millions more. The international community has undertaken steps to end the Syrian conflict and to solve the humanitarian crisis in the Middle Eastern country.
