BEIRUT, October 19. /TASS/. A brief pause in military operations against terrorists in Aleppo is necessary for delivering humanitarian aid to the civilian population, Syrian President Bashar Assad told the Swiss SRF 1 TV channel on Wednesday. The text of the interview has been posted on the website of Syria’s SANA news agency.

"It’s a short halting of operations in order to allow the humanitarian supply to get into different areas in Aleppo, and at the same time to allow the civilians who wanted to leave the terrorist-held areas to move to the government-controlled area," the president said.

Western hysteria around the situation in Aleppo stems from the defeat of terrorists, Assad noted. "This is the only reason, because the Syrian Army is making advancement, and the Western countries — mainly the United States and its allies like UK and France — are feeling that they are losing the last cards of terrorism in Syria, and the main bastion of that terrorism today is Aleppo," he said.
