Saturday, 29 October, 2016 - 12:00

Russian President has replied in the request of generals who applied recently the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Vladimir Putin to allow resumption of air strikes on militant positions near Aleppo.

Putin stressed that the humanitarian pause had to be continued. Despite the provocations of fighters the evacuation of the wounded should be completed and Washington needed time to distinguish terrorists from opposition. 

However, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief said that any patience would eventually end, thus the resumption of air strikes could occur without any notice.

Yesterday a group of jihadists with «Jabhat Fateh al-Sham» tried to capture the southern part of the city, but the attack was repulsed.  Skirmish was going on the whole night.
