GENEVA, April 18. /TASS/. More than 100,000 civilians are caught between the Islamic State (IS) militants, Kurdish territories and the Syrian-Turkish border in the Azaz district of Aleppo province, where fighting has resumed, Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Monday.
"The resurgence of heavy fighting over the last week has led to more than 35,000 people fleeing displaced people camps taken over by IS, or that are too close to front lines," the statement said. "There are now more than 100,000 people gathered at border areas with Turkey, with active fighting just seven kilometers away."
"The fighting has also led to several medical facilities shutting down as fighting draws close and medical staff flee," MSF said.
Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak on Sunday told TASS, that fierce fighting between the Syrian army and militants took place for the city of Al-Eis located between Aleppo, Hama and Homs. He said militants are trying to block the road from Homs to Hama, which can leave several hundred thousands of civilians in Aleppo trapped.
