Syrian Regime: We Have Reclaimed Aleppo
They’re back. Assad’s troops claim to have regained full control of the ancient city — once Syria’s largest. The U.N. says more than 34,000 people have been evacuated from the former industrial hub since last Thursday and taken to rebel-held areas in the countryside. But this victory for President Assad, fueled in part by Russian air strikes, turns the tide on fours of rebel control in the city, signaling a huge win for the regime.
