On Tuesday, Defence Minister S K Shoigu announced that the Russian and Syrian forces halted airstrikes in Aleppo on Tuesday for a 48-hour humanitarian ceasefire. The ceasefire will start ahead of schedule. Earlier, Russian military sources said that they’d halt airstrikes on Thursday, but General Shoigu told us that the ceasefire would start two days early to pave the way for further humanitarian action in Aleppo. General Shoigu expected that nations with sway over anti-government militant groups entrenched in eastern Aleppo would put pressure on them to cease hostilities in return.
