ALEPPO (Sputnik) — Syrian civilians and militants did not take the designated routes out of the besieged city of Aleppo overnight, a local security source told RIA Novosti on Friday.
"There was no activity at the checkpoints last night. Militants did not leave through Castello or Bustan al-Qasr, neither did civilians," the source said.
On Thursday, Russia agreed to halt airstrikes on Islamist positions for 11 hours a day until Monday. Eight humanitarian corridors were opened up to allow civilians and militants willing to lay down their arms to leave eastern Aleppo.
