At this very moment, genocide is occurring in Aleppo, Syria. We are being tortured, raped, slaughtered, and basically exterminated indiscriminately. There is no aid, medicine, food, or tools of survival. There are no hospitals, schools, homes, or any safe haven. There is no body or causality count anymore, there are too many to be accounted for. The White Helmets have officially announced that they are essentially powerless and paralyzed; they have stopped counting the dead, only stopping to wrap bodies in orange bags. Men and male children are forcefully being conscripted into the regime army or massacred in mass executions. There are official reports of women asking their husbands to kill them before being conscripted or executed in fear of mass rape and other atrocities they may face. Aleppo and Hama have suffered chemical attacks that have left seemingly unharmed children lining mosque floors dead. The about 100,000 people left in the city that haven’t died or been displaced are moving from one neighborhood to the other as regime and Russian forces close in. They are running only to fruitlessly go through the action, only to feel like they are trying: it’s of no use. The city is blockaded and there are ongoing airstrikes. There is no way out. There is no escape. This is essentially a cat and mouse game. There is no hope. We are literally asking God for divine help and miracles.

There are claims that “Aleppo is falling”; however, it has FALLEN. Russian and regime offenses have taken 96% of the city. Officials say that Russia and the Syrian regime have agreed to a peace deal and/or ceasefire, but live reports from Aleppo confirm it has yet to be implemented. The siege is ongoing. There is no going back from this. What has occurred these past two days is a genocide that was live-streamed to a world still in denial about our suffering. All we asked for was an end to emergency/martial law, yet we received six years of pure agony

Humanity has failed us. The international community has failed us. We are the worst human rights violation since World War 2. We are Obama’s and the UN’s Rwanda. Please save us. Call your representative. Donate to the White Helmets, Syria Relief, Save the Children, etc. Spread the word. Tell the truth. Do anything you possibly can.

UPDATE: As of Wednesday, December 14th 2016, the Turkish-Russian peace deal and ceasefire has FAILED. Syrians have been waiting since 5 AM for evacuation busses and NONE HAVE ARRIVED. Regime and Russian forces have started shelling the city AGAIN.

Please, don’t forget us! This is not getting better, this getting WORSE. They have won. The city has COLLAPSED yet they will not cease their offense. This is still ongoing. This is a nightmare that will never end. We Syrians are trapped in this city with war crimes still happening! Please continue spreading the word.

UPDATE #2: As of Thursday morning, December 15, 2016, the ceasefire has (for the most part) been held. Preparations for evacuation are just about complete. There will be a safe passage from Eastern to Western Aleppo that the International Committee of the Red Cross will oversee. Evacuations should begin soon. We are hoping that Western Aleppo will react kindly to the under 100,000 civilians coming in from Eastern Aleppo and that it will be, for the most part, successful.

Just remember: surviving Eastern Aleppo citizens are being transported on busses that are overtly and excessively decorated with the face of their butcher. At least it’s a slight reprieve from the past couple of days. Please keep the residents of Aleppo in your thoughts and continue to spread the word.

UPDATE #3: First convoy of 1200 Aleppo evacuees have arrived at Idlib, of which 200 were immediately hospitalized and most in critical condition. A second convoy of about 1198 people has crossed the West Aleppo countryside and has just about arrived, as well. There may be a third evacuation convoy if all remains fairly unhindered.

Please keep in mind that remaining waiting Aleppo residents and even the evacuees are facing harsh winter conditions as homes have been destroyed and it gets brutally cold, especially during the night, in Syria. They are also facing extreme hunger. The Syrian regime is providing them with nothing more than transportation to Idlib. Continue to donate what you can and call your representatives.

This will be the last live update I can provide from Aleppo unless an emergency or crisis (more than the now usual) occurs or important updates must be made. Please keep spreading the word, supporting civilians in anyway you can, and remaining vigilant and informed on the crisis in Syria. International mainstream media failed us and many of you didn’t even know what was happening until you read this post. The Aleppo genocide was one of many crises over the past six years and will be one of many more. Keep Syria in your thoughts and prayers. Spread the word.

CEASEFIRE AND EVACUATIONS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED. 

Until this morning (Friday, December 16, 2016), approximately 8 buses carrying about 7500 civilians from Eastern Aleppo to either government backed Western Aleppo or also besieged Idlib. Now the the, the ceasefire, peace deal, AND evacuations HAVE BEEN OFFICIALLY SUSPENDED by Russia and the Syrian regime. This was after a deal reached on all sides that in exchange for evacuating Eastern Aleppo, militants (known as Fateh al-Sham) would allow 29 buses into two villages they’ve seized to transport the wounded.

However, Iran-backed Lebanese Hezbollah militants OPENED FIRE on the ninth convoy of Aleppo evacuees and has taken 800 HOSTAGES. The Syrian regime then demanded that the evacuation processes be halted, demanded the Int’l Red Cross to leave Eastern Aleppo, and shelling and bombardment HAVE BEGAN AGAIN in Eastern Aleppo. There are approximately 65,000 residents still held in that part of the city.

All communication has been cut and now we face a media blackout from Eastern Aleppo. Last communications were distress calls that confirmed Assad, Russia, and Iranian backed militias have resumed their assault on Aleppo.

We have been unable to communicate properly with anyone under siege from Eastern Aleppo. Seized convoy buses and hostages have reported horrors from Hezbollah militias. They are purposely rounding up men and male children, in front of their wives and mothers, and killing them in mass executions. Women are being kidnapped, raped, tortured, threatened with their husbands or children, and being sent back to besieged Eastern Aleppo. Some of these women have committed suicide (in some cases along with their children) in order to avoid the war crimes against them after their husbands are killed or taken away.

The peace deal has collapsed. We are back to square one. Aleppo residents and evacuees are either facing heavy bombardment and attacks in a blockaded city with no escape or facing amongst the worst crimes against humanity by militias and the regime as hostages seized in these convoys. The Red Crescent has expressed absolute shock at the deterioration of the ceasefire and evacuation deal. As of now, Eastern Aleppo and their evacuees are back to facing the horrors equivalent of the ones they faced earlier this week.

Once again, humanity and the international community has failed us. We are being butchered by our own government and its allies. The worst war crimes and violations of human rights are being committed against the most powerless people in the world. Please help. Continue to spread the word.

OVERDUE UPDATE ON ALEPPO & GREATER SYRIA

As of Tuesday, December 20th, 2016: 

After Russia threatened to veto a UN resolution regarding approved UN monitors to monitor evacuations from Aleppo, Syria, a compromised agreement was made and the resolution passed. 

Since then, evacuations from besieged Eastern Aleppo have been made to the countryside of regime-held Western Aleppo. Yesterday, 18 buses picked up evacuees at the standpoint of Rashideen. Over 400 buses have transported civilians, but about 20,000 civilians still remain in Eastern Aleppo. If all goes fairly unhindered (crimes of abuse, threats, and humiliation are consistently occurring despite evacuations), by nightfall of the 20th or early the 21st in Syria, Eastern Aleppo should finally be emptied of it’s brave resilient children who stood up to four years of assault from Russia, Iran, and the regime in the name of democracy and freedom.  

Ground breaking small on ground humanitarian aid groups, like the Karam Foundation, Live Updates from Syria, and the White Helmets, have provided warm food, blankets, and the necessities to all evacuees so far to combat the freezing temperatures that currently plague Aleppo and greater Syria to prevent anymore deaths from hunger, the cold, and critical injuries like those that have occurred this past week. 

In other news, Bana Alabed and her family, the family that live blogged their lives in besieged Aleppo on Twitter, were also evacuated. The orphanage of about 50 children that made headlines for a frightening and moving video posted during the height of the Aleppo genocide were also all evacuated. 

This may be (and hopefully will be as we cannot take anymore suffering) the end of the fall and genocide of Eastern Aleppo. We will not forgive and we will not forget the deafening international silence that responded to our blockaded screams for mercy and help. 

We will never forget the horrors of the Aleppo genocide of December 13th to December 18th. We will never forget Aleppo. 

UPDATE #1: Regime checkpoint seized final civilian convoy from besieged Eastern Aleppo. It is not expected to move for hours; estimated to not move again until dawn in Syria. Hundred of civilians, including children, will be waiting with no food or shelter in subzero temperatures. We hope the convoy will be allowed to move as soon as possible.
