State run media in Syria announced on Thursday that the Syrian regime had taken full control of the city of Aleppo, reports CNN.
Government forces and their allies now control the city in its entirety, ending more than four years of rebel rule there during the country's five-year civil war.
The Syrian regime and its most powerful ally, Russia, have decimated full neighborhoods with airstrikes.
The Syrian government controlled western Aleppo, and now, they have taken control of the eastern half as well.
The rebels no longer have an urban stronghold to boast, and the government is back in control of the country's four major cities.
Since the government is back in control, it's unlikely an opposition government will be established.
Some on Twitter have celebrated the news of the government's success.
Despite the government's full control, the city is still being evacuated.
