Heroic Aleppo falls into the hands of genocidal al-Assad

By Miguel Lamas, in El Socialista 337 (organ of Izquierda Socialista, IWU-FI), 13 December 2016

After years of heroic resistance, enduring the criminal bombings of the genocidal al-Assad and Putin, the glorious Aleppo falls. At the close of this edition, an agreement was announced that would allow the evacuation of rebel fighters from the last pockets of resistance. With no supplies or ammunition there was no alternative. Under the agreement, they could leave with their light weapons to the province of Idlib under rebel control, after the civilian population and the infirm were withdrawn. Of course, we cannot be sure that al-Assad and Putin will respect the agreement; particularly with the growth of reported cases about the atrocities and killings being carried out by the pro-Assad Iraqi and Lebanese "militias" executing civilians allegedly collaborating with the rebels.
