Syrian rebels and the government army reached a new agreement on the evacuation of the eastern part of Aleppo. This was reported by Reuters referring to the news channel "Al Arabiya".

The representative of the rebels Al-Farouq Abu Bakr said that the deal includes a full evacuation of the eastern part of Aleppo, as well as two Shiite villages controlled by the rebels as well as two settlements near the Lebanese border besieged by the army.

Yesterday, the evacuation was suspended because of the shelling. It was also reported that the army demanded the removal of people from the two Shiite villages, and the rebels did not agree on such terms. At the same time, the Defense Ministry reported that all civilians and most of the fighters were evacuated from the eastern districts of Aleppo.
