Russia: Syrian Army Suspends Active Military Operation in Aleppo for Days

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced on Thursday that Syrian government forces have suspended “active military activities” against militants in Eastern Aleppo to enable the withdrawal of civilians from the city.


The Russian foreign minister also urged the UN special envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, to “stop sabotaging” the Geneva Syria peace talks, RT reported.

Speaking to reporters, he also expressed hope that those responsible for the recent attack on a Russian mobile hospital in Western Aleppo will be brought to justice. The assault happened earlier this week and left two female paramedics dead and one chief pediatrician severely injured.

"We are just doing our job, probably not everyone likes it, and a recent targeted strike against our hospital is yet more proof of that. But I am convinced that all measures will be taken to punish those responsible, and to prevent similar [attacks] in the future," Lavrov said.

He noted that the US State Department previously expressed regret over the incident, but emphasized that “it has to clarify” all the circumstances.

However, according to Foreign Minister “in cases when the Syrian government can be suspected, Americans are not clarifying anything, but are immediately heading to the microphone, demanding [the perpetrators] be punished."
