Eastern Aleppo to be completely ruined in tow months, de Mistura says
Rebel-held eastern Aleppo in northern Syria may face “total destruction” in two months, with thousands killed, the UN’s Syria envoy has said.
Staffan de Mistura told reporters that he was prepared to personally accompany militant al-Nusra fighters out of the city if it would stop the fighting.
He also appealed to Russia and Syria not to destroy the city for the sake of eliminating militants.
The UN says 275,000 civilians are trapped in the war-torn east of Aleppo.
