The evacuation of the rebel-held district of the Syrian city of Aleppo continued was going at full pace again today, after some weekend delays involving al-Qaeda blocking evacuations from Shi’ite villages in Idlib. Today, the refugees were able to leave both areas in buses.
An estimated 7,000 people were evacuated from Aleppo today, bringing the total gotten out of the rebel district since last week to 17,000. Estimates vary, but the higher-end suggested about 50,000 people overall needed to be evacuated, and if no new obstacles emerge, that might only take a few days.
The UN Security Council, in a move that is likely entirely too late to make any difference, today agreed to deploy around 100 monitors into Aleppo to prevent “massacres.” The deal was a compromise between French and Russian officials, and UN officials say they’ll be able to deploy the monitors almost immediately
Exactly how immediately that is remains unclear, but officials have conceded that the evacuation might well be completely over by the time the monitors get into position. The reports out of Idlib suggest the evacuations there are continuing apace as well, though there are no plans to get monitors into those villages, surrounded by al-Qaeda forces.

Well, it does make sense now. Yesterday, news leaked about some foreign “advisors” to have been found in Aleppo. The number mentioned was 14. But today, Sytian Ambassador to UN announced in UN SC that 12 are in rebel held part — and then fesd their full names and countries they are from. Most (6) are from Saudi Arabia. The rest from Turkey, US, Qatar, Israel and Jordan. Were there other two not released into area to be evacuated? But remains clear that Syria had full view of their IDs and then released for evacuation. There may be others in areas not taken by government. The idiots from various European govdrnments are still talking of “massacre”. — but nobody can figure out when and where this alleged massacre occured. Once Army cut East Aleppo in half, the popullation just started flooding out into government held area through corridors and into field hospitals and shelters. Why would army kill people it just liberated. The only real problem that may arise is lack of adequate screening and in the mass exodus some dangerous people escaped. It is VERY disturbing that Al-Qaeda became US partner in Syria. So slick was the process that we barely noticed at first — they were just not mentioned any more as terrorists. Then the next step, they became rebels. Then the brave opposition and the last stand of revolutionaries — with population bravely manning the barricades. The lies never end. Now are inventing numbers. Presumably in these few blocks there are around 50,000 people. Of course there are only militants and their families left — most estimate around 7,000 – 9,000. But MSM cannot let go of the notion that militants were surrounded by citizens loyal to the revolution. And let us remember — it all started with Al-Qaeda.
reuters, reuters and abcnews. Three ‘news’ sources I wouldn’t trust to tell me the sun is going to rise in the east in the morning.
To these groups, ‘evacuations’ means getting the Al-Qaeda terrorists out of Aleppo so they can fight again.
Even at this number, the Turk FM stated a couple of days ago that 20,000 had been evacuated.
And of course, this number doesn’t include the many tens of thousands who are quite happy to be free of Al-Qaeda’s rule and are celebrating their freedom. You can count on fake news sources like reuters and abcnews not to even mention those celebrations.
And of course, these fake news sources can’t produce any bodies or mass graves that back up their claims of ‘massacres’. Just like the same sources reported the ‘massacres’ in Yugoslavia nearly 30 years ago that likewise failed to have any proof. There’s a good reason why I don’t read or listen to any of these fake news sources.
I wonder if they’ll still be ‘rebels’ when one of these terrorists goes to Europe and kills a bunch of people? Of course not, but these fake news sources will cover up and not mention that they were armed and trained by the same western countries that later cry about their terrorism.
