Syrian Red Crescent Waiting to Evacuate Wounded in Aleppo
The evacuation is part of an agreement between militants and the Syrian government to evacuate the opposition-held neighborhoods of eastern Aleppo of militants and civilians in what is effectively a surrender of the city to the government.
The evacuation marks a big victory in the 5-year long Syrian war and returns Aleppo, once Syria's largest city and its commercial capital, to the complete control of the government.
A cease-fire deal between the rebels and the Syrian government that was to allow the evacuation of rebels and civilians from eastern Aleppo effectively collapsed Wednesday.
