Jihadist rebels reject UN offer of safe pass from east Aleppo

The jihadist rebels of Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front) formally rejected the UN's offer of safe passage from the east Aleppo neighborhoods, despite being completely besieged by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham and their allies were initially offered by the leader of the United Nations' Special Envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura; however, their rejection on Thursday put an end to this humanitarian intervention.

In order to comply with the UN's humanitarian requests, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF) has reduced the number of airstrikes over the east Aleppo neighborhoods.

The reduction in airstrikes has had little impact on the Syrian Arab Army's performance in east Aleppo, as they have managed to capture several sites from the jihadist rebels, including the strategic Suleiman Al-Halabi District.
