Russia and Syria launch large-scale humanitarian op for Aleppo residents


Russia said on Thursday it had launched a “large-scale humanitarian operation” together with the Syrian government around the battered city of Aleppo to open humanitarian corridors for civilians and fleeing fighters.

Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu told Russian news agencies that three humanitarian corridors were being opened “to aid civilians held hostage by terrorists and for fighters wishing to lay down their arms” and one more corridor to the north of the city for rebels to flee with their weapons.
