Sergey Lavrov quotes RIA News:
Such guys are now around Aleppo from the west, from the east - government forces with our help provided unblocking of this city. And according to our data, those who flee the area are militants who are fleeing. And let's not forget that all those around Aleppo - Dzhebhat al-Nusra and Jaish al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham and some more moderate groups - all of them are supplied on the same route, from one point in Turkey. This factor must also be borne in mind, since the resolution adopted by the UN Security Council prior to resolution 2254, prohibits any deliveries that support terrorist groups.
Meanwhile, Syrian sources report on the successful advance of the SAR army. Thus, in the province of Hama managed to eliminate a group of terrorists near the border with the province of Idlib.
