The army said Thursday it has retaken full control of Syria\’s devastated second city Aleppo, scoring its biggest victory against opposition forces since the civil war erupted in 2011.
The announcement came after a landmark evacuation deal that put an end to a ferocious month-long offensive waged on east Aleppo by government forces and allied militia.
Earlier, the Red Cross said more than 4,000 fighters had left rebel-held areas of the city in the final stages of an evacuation.
The loss of east Aleppo is the biggest blow to Syria\’s rebel movement in the nearly six-year conflict, which has killed more than 310,000 people.
