    HMEYMIM (Syria), November 27 (Sputnik) — More than 900 civilians, including 119 children, have left the rebel-held area in the eastern part of the northern Syrian city of Aleppo in last 24 hours, the Russian center for Syrian reconciliation said in a statement on Sunday.

    "Only in last 24 hours 903 civilians, including 119 children have left the militant-held area Jabal-Bidaru. Eight militants have ended resistance and left the eastern part of the city using the corridors provided by the Russian center for reconciliation and by the Syrian authorities," the statement said.

    Meanwhile, thousands of civilians are believed to be trapped in Aleppo without access to food, water, electricity or medical assistance as Syrian government troops and rebel forces continue to fight for its control.
