"We appeal to common sense of militants in the eastern part of the city. Stop the bloodshed, bombing of residential areas and attacks on civilians," the statement said.
"The Syrian army and its allies adhered to all declared humanitarian truces, as well as defined safe corridors [for evacuation]. At the same time, the militants in the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo violated every ceasefire and continued attacks on the civilian population," a statement obtained by RIA Novosti read.
In October, a humanitarian pause was introduced in Aleppo to ensure the safe evacuation of civilians and unarmed militants from eastern parts of the city through designated corridors. That pause collapsed when the militants from the Jabhat Fatah al Sham, previously known as al-Nusra Front attacked civilians, preventing them from fleeing the city.
