Terrorists Set $300 Ransom for Civilians to Leave Aleppo

Terrorists in Aleppo announced any person willing to leave the areas in the Syrian Northern city should pay a sum of about $300 to receive the permit from the militants to leave the city through the humanitarian corridors, according in leaflets distributed on behalf of the Supreme Military Council of Jeish al-Fatah militant group.

"Our leadership realizes the level of suffering endured by the city's peaceful civilians because of the bombardments and the blockade of Aleppo neighborhoods.

After consultation with our brothers, we will let the residents aged under 14 and older than 55 out of the city if each of them pays 150,000 Syrian liras (approximately $300) for an opportunity to leave in order to support our brothers fighting on the fronts," the leaflets said, TASS reported.

However, this is a racking sum for most people remaining in Eastern Aleppo.

They do not have food or water.

"Where can we find 150,000 liras and what if a person does not have the money? Does it mean that he or she should die?! We want to get out of here.

We have nothing here to survive," the local residents said.

To prevent civilian casualties, the Syrian and Russian military have created 8 humanitarian corridors, which both the civilians and the militants can use to get out of the surrounded neighborhoods in eastern Aleppo.

The corridors are working round the clock.

Militants continue delivering shelling attacks on Aleppo injuring more than a hundred civilians every day.

The attacks increased in recent days.

According to the military, the terrorists used bombs filled with a toxic gas on October 30 in a bid to break the encirclement.

Both the Syrian military and civilians were hurt.

The Al Razi Hospital admitted 46 patients with symptoms of chemical poisoning.

"They had symptoms like sickness, vomiting, loss of consciousness, temporary paralysis of extremities, headache, fluid lungs and foam coming from the mouth.

Upon receiving medical aid, the patients said that prior to losing their senses, they had felt a smell of washing powder and chlorine," Aleppo's chief forensic pathologist said.

According to the military, 55 civilians, including 17 children and 7 pregnant women, have died and 335 have been injured, with more than 30 are in critical condition,, in Aleppo over the past five days.
