La tregua dei bombardamenti di Aleppo prevista per domani durerà tre ore in più rispetto a quanto stabilito in precedenza. Lo ha detto il Generale russo Sergei Rudskoy sottolineando come la pausa umanitaria durerà dalle 8 del mattino fino alle 19. “A seguito di numerose richieste da parte delle organizzazioni internazionali abbiamo esteso la durata della tregua. Ora ci auguriamo che gli Stati Uniti e gli altri Paesi sapranno influenzare i leader dei gruppi armati in modo da assicurare l'evacuazione dei malati e dei feriti dalla città," ha aggiunto Rudskoy.

The humanitarian pause in Syria’s Aleppo on October 20 will be extended for three more hours following a request from international organizations, Lt. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy, chief of the Russian General Staff's Main Operational Directorate said Wednesday. On Monday, Russia announced the humanitarian pause in Aleppo from 08:00 [05:00 GMT] to 16:00 local time on October 20, halting its airstrikes so that civilians could escape the besieged eastern districts of the Aleppo city and aid convoys could safely get through to those who remain there. "Following numerous requests from representatives of international organizations a decision was taken to extend the humanitarian pause for three more hours until 19:00," Rudskoy said. According to the official, Russia and Syria have fulfilled all of their commitments on the humanitarian operation in Aleppo. "We hope that the United States and other stakeholders will influence the leaders of armed groups and ensure evacuation of the sick and the wounded, the exit of civilians and militants from the city," he added.
