According to the center, about 20 buses and 10 ambulances will carry out evacuations of the militants. The reconciliation center is monitoring the situation in the area using surveillance cameras, drones.
"By an order of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Russian reconciliation center in collaboration with the Syrian authorities is preparing to evacuate the remaining militants and their family members from the eastern discyricts of the city of Aleppo," the center said in a statement.

The Syrian authorities are guaranteeing that all members of armed groups who decide to leave eastern Aleppo will be safe, the center added.

"The Syrian authorities are guaranteeing safety of all members of armed groups who decided to leave eastern districts of Aleppo," the center said in a statement.

On Tuesday, the Russian reconciliation center said that the Syrian government army was controlling over 98 percent of the territory of Aleppo, with militants present in less than 1 square mile of the city's territory.

Officially the ceasefire is proceeding very great as the transferring process is operating smoothly. Evacuation is ongoing now!

Since 2012, Aleppo, formerly the largest city in Syria, has been heavily involved in the conflict between the government forces and militants, which led to the city eventually divided into the western part held by the government and the eastern part controlled by the militants.Looks like the remaining rebels in East #Aleppo are trying to dictate the terms for their evacuation by holding civilians hostage. pic.twitter.com/1bNjP0iCS3

Syrian Army foils major jihadist assault in southwest Aleppo

15 December, 2016

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 A.M.) - The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh launched another desperate offensive in the Aleppo Governorate on Wednesday, targeting the southwestern corridor of the city this time after failing to make any progress at the Al-Zahra'a Quarter.

Led by their largest faction, Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (formerly Al-Nusra Front), the jihadist rebels stormed the strategic Hikmah area of southwest Aleppo from their positions at the Rashiddeen 4 suburb; this resulted in a fierce battle with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah on Wednesday night.

Following their second attack at the Hikmah area, the jihadist rebels were forced to retreat after the Syrian Arab Army's Republican Guard forces and Hezbollah launched their own counter-assault to expel Jaysh Al-Fateh.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah have made several advances around the Rashiddeen 4 suburb and Hikmah Hill, killing and wounding a number of militants in the process.

This jihadist offensive on Wednesday night began approximately 10 hours before the first buses from the surrendered eastern districts of Aleppo were scheduled to arrive in the Rashiddeen 4 suburb.
