About it “Interfax” said a source in Geneva, familiar with the course of Russian-American consultations.

“The parties are discussing the possibility of starting the application of coordinated strikes on militants in Aleppo about the middle of September,” he said.

According to the interlocutor of the Agency, at that time in Aleppo and its surroundings should remain only those fighters that did not want to surrender their weapons. They will be surrounded and destroyed.

We will note that earlier the foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov and his us counterpart John Kerry held 12 hours of talks, discussing ways out of the Syrian crisis.

Currently Aleppo is surrounded by Syrian government forces in the city of fierce fighting. According to various estimates, there are more than 200 thousand civilians, and the situation itself has long gone over the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe.
