Thousands of Aleppo residents in limbo as transport fails to arrive
People trapped in city face another night under siege despite government assurances that vehicles were on their way
The remains of besieged #Aleppo are a freezing, desperate chaos, with tens of thousands of hungry, frightened people waiting long hours for spaces on buses they fear may never depart, aid workers and trapped civilians have said.
“By bus, by car, by walking, even crawling, we are ready to leave by any way, we just want to get out,” said a 26-year-old medical technician Ahmad Abo Dyab, after a day of waiting for space on a bus before the evacuation system collapsed on Friday. “We have given up on our homes, our belongings, everything: now we only want to get out.”
