The humanitarian ceasefire in Aleppo kept by the Russian and Syrian armies since Thursday morning has been extended by 24 hours so that civilians and fighters have the opportunity to leave the rebel districts under siege in the city, stated Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoygu, cited by France Presse.

“By order of the Chief of the Armed Forces Vladimir Putin, a decision has been taken to extend the humanitarian pause by 24 hours,” explained Shoygu.
