WATCH | Less than 24 hours after an agreement was reached to allow evacuations from the besieged city of Aleppo, tens of thousands of civilians remain trapped.
After two weeks of major advances on the city by the Syrian army and its allies, Turkey and Russia brokered a ceasefire Tuesday, in what amounted to a surrender by the rebels. By Wednesday, the truce had collapsed as activists on the ground reported Syrian warplanes had resumed airstrikes in rebel areas.
It's unclear if and when the evacuations will take place. For now, the United Nations estimates as many as 50,000 residents lack adequate access to food and fuel.
Activists like Lina Shamy described firsthand the violence.
It seems as though everything (the ceasefire) is finished.
Rami Abdulrahman, director of the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, reported heavy clashes Wednesday morning.
