Russia announces aid operation for Syria's battered Aleppo

Aleppo and the surrounding area has suffered some of the worst fighting in the five-year Syrian conflict, which has killed more than 280,000 peopleSyria ally Russia announced a “large-scale” aid operation Thursday for trapped civilians and opposition fighters fleeing the embattled northern city of Aleppo, as President Bashar al-Assad offered an amnesty to rebels who surrender. Pro-government forces effectively surround opposition neighbourhoods of the divided city, sparking fears for at least 200,000 people trapped there. Russian defence Minister Sergei Shoigu told reporters that three humanitarian corridors were being opened “to aid civilians held hostage by terrorists and for fighters wishing to lay down their arms” and one more corridor to the north of the city for rebels to flee with their weapons.
