Video shows bodies scattered in Aleppo after attack

Seizing it would put the Syrian regime back in control of all four major cities and make an opposition government less likely.

The assault - backed by heavy artillery fire - has spurred a mass exodus of tens of thousands of residents from rebel-held districts.

Suitcases and plastic bags were strewn among the bodies, which the White Helmet workers carefully transferred into orange body bags.

"The artillery hit a first time and we ran".

For President Assad's chief ally Russian Federation, the Syrian army advance is a liberation for trapped civilians.

Observatory chief Rami Abdurrahman said he predicts death tolls will spiral in east Aleppo as the internal displacement creates more residential density.

A new round of fighting was reported Wednesday in southeast Aleppo, though conflicting reports are emerging about which side made gains.

Jawad al-Rifai, who took the pictures for the Aleppo Media Center, said they were civilians - mostly women and children - fleeing shelling and air strikes on other parts of the city.

"The future of Aleppo is in the hands of the Assad regime and Russia", Rycroft said.

He pointed to reports from the UN´s humanitarian partners on the ground indicating that "up to 16,000 people have been displaced, many into uncertain and precarious situations".

A hospital able to serve up to 250 patients a day will be sent to the Aleppo region on Wednesday morning, reports in Russian Federation said.

Russian Federation introduced an earlier humanitarian pause in October, to ensure the safe evacuation of civilians and unarmed militants from eastern Aleppo through designated corridors. Help the civilians! Protect the civilians!,' said Brita Hagi Hasan, speaking at a news conference held with French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.

The UN Security Council will meet to discuss their plight later on Wednesday.

Syrian troops have seized at least a third of eastern Aleppo since renewing their bid to recapture all of the battered second city just over two weeks ago.

The loss of east Aleppo would be potentially the worst blow for rebel forces since the conflict began.

"Following recent developments, the Castello Road can be used for aid deliveries to eastern Aleppo without any limitations, or any further special talks or agreements".

The effect has been no less devastating.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights nearly 300 civilians, including 33 children, have been killed in eastern Aleppo since the government began bombarding the city earlier this month. Opposition activists say these people were trying to flee to the government-held districts, but that they came under regime shelling.

Retaliatory rocket fire by the rebels on government-held areas has killed 48 civilians, according to the Britain-based Observatory, which has a wide network of sources on the ground.

"The Russian Center for Reconciliation did not receive a single proposal on the humanitarian aid deliveries either from the United Nations or from any other global organization as if civilians no longer need food and medicine after militants have been driven out", Rudskoi said.

The deadliest strike occurred July 18, when coalition aircraft attacked a group of IS fighters near Manbij in northern Syria, killing about 100 of them.
