This morning, the Syrian Army announced that 95% of Aleppo is under its forces’ control. According to the human rights organization, the rebel forces withdrew from six neighborhoods that were their last strongholds a few hours after the Syrian Army’s announcement, ending the long and bloody conflict within the city.
