Three civilians who tried to flee a rebel-controlled area of Aleppo via a humanitarian corridor were captured and executed, the Russian Ministry of Defense said, adding that Al-Nusra and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists in the area are trying to break free of the army’s siege.


“Three civilians who today were trying to flee Karm al-Qasr quarter [of Allepo] to relatives who live in the territory controlled by the Syrian authorities, were captured and executed by militants,” the ministry said in their daily report.
