"UNHCR will be part of broader UN assistance programs in Aleppo and convoys as and when access is possible.

On Thursday, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the evacuation of people from Aleppo has been completed. Some 40,000 people, including militants, have left the city since evacuations began a week ago following consultations between Russia, Turkey and Iran.
