The evacuation begins

After the fall of Aleppo, both sides agreed to allow for the safe passage of residents that have been trapped in the city. The Red Cross expects the evacuation to take several days with about 3,000 people leaving the city in ambulances and buses today. The residents are being taken to Idlib, a province Assad has vowed to target next, and Turkey has promised to take the most vulnerable. It’s hard to tell what’s next for Syria, but this war, and Syrian suffering, is far from over.
