Govt con­fi­dent of Aleppo vic­tory

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Bashar al-As­sad said vic­tory in Aleppo would be a “huge step” to­ward end­ing Syria’s civil war. In a three-week of­fen­sive, Syr­ian govern­ment forces have seized about 80 per­cent of east Aleppo, a strong­hold of rebel groups since 2012, with op­po­si­tion fac­tions call­ing for an “im­me­di­ate five-day hu­man­i­tar­ian cease-fire”. The United States, the United King­dom and France have also called for a truce.
