HMEYMIM /Syria/, December 7. /TASS/. Syrian government troops over the past 24 hours recaptured another ten quarters of eastern Aleppo from militants, the Russian center for the reconciliation of warring factions in Syria has said adding that at the moment the Syrian army was in full control of 45 quarters of Aleppo, previously held by militants.
Earlier on Wednesday Syria’s television channel Al Ekhbariya said Syrian troops had established control of 13 quarters in the historical part of Aleppo, including Kastel Kharami, Kastel Mashtal, Al-Hamidiya and Dananir Square. According to the television channel pockets of armed resistance still remain in Firdous and Bustan al-Qasr. Most militants have fled to the south of the city: the Al-Salihin and Al-Suqqari quarters.
A source in Aleppo told the Iranian news agency Tasnim that about 80% of eastern Aleppo has been re-gained by government troops. A large part of the northern and northwestern areas, too, are under the full control of government forces.
