The Syrian rebels ask for ceasefire

In the recent events, the pressure of the Syrian army has forced the rebels to ask for a ceasefire in the city of Aleppo, Syria’s most populous city before the war. However, Syria and Russia, supporting Syria in this war, said that they won’t hold a ceasefire unless all the rebels leave Aleppo.

The ceasefire is supposed to be able to let the civilians and the wounded evacuate from the city, however there was no mention about the thousands of rebel soldier leaving the city. The Syrian army, along with the allied forces have made rapid and important gains over the rebels, especially in the last two week period, and rebels have been put under pressure.

Normal civilians are struggling for food and water supplies.
