BEIRUT, March 3. /TASS/. UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura has arrived in Aleppo on Tuesday to facilitate temporary truce between the government forces and rebels. Local ceasefire will first be established in one of Aleppo’s districts and then expanded to other areas.

Aleppo, 360 kilometers north of Damascus, is considered to be trade and economic capital of Syria. From August 2012, the city was split in two parts - its western districts are controlled by the Syrian army, while eastern part of Aleppo is controlled by several armed groups.

The city has been damaged in fighting, and de Mistura has urged the sides to accept his plan on halting combat actions in order to provide humanitarian aid for local population.
