About 12,000 Syrian civilians have been evacuated so far from the Syrian city of Aleppo, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday.
On Friday, the Russian Defense Ministry announced that Aleppo was now under full government control with the Syrian army operation to retake the eastern districts completed. Civilians and militants were leaving the city amid a ceasefire agreement between the remaining pockets of resistance and government forces.
