Following the decision of the Syrian government to create a humanitarian corridor for civilian to leave the besieged Aleppo, hundreds of families have escaped to government safe zone inside Syria. The government pictures showed families in buses escaping to temporary shelters. About 300,000 people were said to be trapped in Eastern Aleppo and the United Nations (UN) had warned that they were running out of food.
The Syrian Government and its ally, Russia had earlier announced four safe corridors for families to leave Aleppo. The opportunity according to Government source was open to both civilians and rebels.
The UN however, said the corridor should be administered by the UN and there should be 48 hours ceasefire to enable families to leave to safe zones. Meanwhile, the United States says the plan may be aimed at forcing civilians to leave and for rebels to surrender.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
