Russian defense Ministry: Situation in Mosul is different from that in Aleppo

Moscow, SANA-Russian defense Ministry affirmed on Tuesday that the situation in the Iraqi city of Mosul is different from that in Aleppo, saying that “the attack on the residential neighborhoods in Mosul may lead to a big number of victims.”

Spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry, General Igor Konashenkov, commenting on statements by spokesperson of US Department of State John Kirby, said that the situation in Mosul is different from that of Aleppo where there are humanitarian corridors, journalists and activists.

“The Syrian government and Russia have opened 6 routes to evacuate the civilians from the eastern neighborhoods, but the gunmen targeted them,” Konashenkov added.

 Terrorists in the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo take the civilians as human shields and prevent them from leaving the area through the safe routes opened by the Syrian government.
