MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. The first groups of the supporters of extremist groupings entrenched in the eastern districts of Aleppo have started leaving the city, the Syrian television reported on Thursday.
Separate groups of militants have started leaving Aleppo with their families through the checkpoint established near the Castello Road, the Syrian television said.
The Syrian army is distributing leaflets in the residential quarters held by militants, indicating security corridors, along which civilians and the supporters of opposition groupings can leave Aleppo.
The Syrian army command made a repeat call to Aleppo residents and militants on Thursday "to take advantage of the humanitarian pause and leave the city’s eastern districts."
Syrian servicemen have cleared passages through the Duvar-Dzhandul transport corridor and the area of Bustan al-Qasr. The authorities have guaranteed the safe movement of people and vehicles through them. Convoys of buses and volunteers of the Syrian Society of the Red Crescent are ready to evacuate civilians and accompany them.
The Syrian Army earlier announced that the humanitarian pause for the free passage of civilians, the evacuation of ill and wounded persons and also the pullout of militants from eastern Aleppo would last from 08:00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. Moscow time (05:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. GMT).
Six humanitarian corridors have been set up for civilians and two corridors for the pullout of armed militants.
