Nusra Front Mortar Attack Kills, Injures over 70 Syrians in Eastern Aleppo Province
Tens of civilians who intended to leave the terrorist-controlled areas were killed and injured in Fatah al-Sham's mortar attacks in Eastern Aleppo, the Arabic-language media reports said.
At least 45 civilians were killed and 30 others were wounded in Fatah al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) terrorists' mortar fire, the Arabic-language al-Hadas News reported.
The Eastern Aleppo residents were trying to escape towards a safe passage when they came under the terrorists' mortar attack.
Farah al-Sham also arrested most of the injured Syrian citizens.
According to reports, tens of thousands of civilians, including thousands of children and new born babies, have escaped terrorist-controlled areas of Eastern Aleppo in recent days.
Head of operations in the Russian General Staff General Sergey Rudskoy said Wednesday that over 18,000 civilians left terrorist-controlled areas of Aleppo as a result of the Syrian army's successful operation.
The Syrian army's recent victories in Eastern Aleppo were secured after it started special operations in Aleppo after several humanitarian pauses declared by Damascus and Moscow to give a chance to the civilian population as well as the militants to leave the Eastern parts of the city through 8 corridors, and eventually managed to win full control over the Northern flank of the Aleppo city's Eastern districts and take back a number of neighborhood in the Southern part of the Eastern Aleppo, FNA reported.
