3 Killed in Aleppo, Including 7-Year-Old Girl; West Reportedly Seeking to Protect Terrorist Ringleaders

In addition to the attack described in the above video, a report has surfaced today of Western governments seeking to rescue terrorist ringleaders from Aleppo. The following is from the Real Syrian Free Press:
A senior Syrian legislator said the western states seek to rescue the terrorist groups’ foreign ringleaders from Aleppo and ordered them to stay in the city until they can work out a deal with Damascus and Moscow.
“The terrorists stationed in Eastern Aleppo had taken orders from Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar to remain in the region,” Fares al-Shahabi told FNA on Monday.
“The main reason behind such an order was the West’s intention to make a deal (with Syria and Russia) which would lead to the evacuation of foreign ringleaders of the terrorists from Eastern Aleppo,” he added.
Al-Shahabi said that the foreign commanders of the terrorist groups in Aleppo are nationals of the NATO member states and Israel.
The latest reports from Eastern Aleppo said that Fatah al-Sham Front (the newly-formed al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) continues to seize people’s food supplies by force and executed an Imam who tried to persuade civilians and militants to leave the Eastern part of Aleppo.
“On the third day of the humanitarian paused in Aleppo, the Fatah al-Sham arrested and assassinated a popular leader who called on militants to lay down arms and enter peace with government and urged people to leave the city as soon as possible,” sources in the Eastern parts of the city said on Sunday.
In the meantime, more civilians in Eastern Aleppo called on international organizations to help them leave Aleppo.
“People in the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo face very bad situation. The terrorists groups take by force their food supplies and money and beat them,” one of residents said.
Fatah al-Sham and Ahrar al-Sham terrorists prevent the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) mission from evacuating the wounded from the Eastern districts of the Syrian city of Aleppo, a Geneva source familiar with the situation told RIA Novosti of Saturday.
“The ICRC has been trying to convince the representatives of the key armed groups (al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham) to allow access to Eastern Aleppo to evacuate the wounded. There are hundreds of injured. The militants set a condition for giving access (to the area), (they) demand medical supplies and medical treatment of militants,” the source added.
The Russian and Syrian governments agreed to stop airstrikes on terrorists controlling parts of Aleppo starting Thursday to ensure the safe evacuation of unarmed militants, and civilians from Eastern Aleppo via eight designated corridors.
The Russian General Staff said that the humanitarian pause in Aleppo was extended for one day, from 08:00 to 16:00 local time on October 22.
Meanwhile, political analyst Stephen Lendman says Russia “would be well advised to liberate key parts of Syria before both Clintons assume power,” while Russian press spokesman Dimitry Peskov says all efforts must be made to prevent the breakup of the country.
“Syria’s territory should be liberated,” Peskov said. “And everything should be done to hinder the breakup of that country into any parts, which may have most catastrophic consequences for the region.”
I would assume Peskov realizes that the only way prevent the catastrophic consequences he fears is to liberate all of Syria. Otherwise, shells will continue to fly and hospitals like the one in Aleppo in the video above will continue to be inundated.
