Almost all the militants were transported from eastern districts of Aleppo city to Idlib province leaving the most radical ones ‘to stay till the end’. Various reports say from 800 to 1,200 militants of so-called ‘moderate opposition’ and radical jihadist groups are still remaining in the blocked areas of the city.
United Nations and Arab League Envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura during one of his numerous press-conferences and interviews said he was ready to participate personally in the evacuation of al Nusra terrorists. This kind of statements may sound evocative as the Arab League is obviously interested in saving as many militants as possible for further participating in combats in Syria due to their training and funding.
After a number of breaches of the ceasefire and evacuation agreement by Nusra terrorists who burnt the ‘green buses’, the militants in blocked Aleppo quarters expect to be taken out of the city in exchange for letting free the civilians held by militants in Aleppo’s Fuaa and Kafraya towns.
