Syrian rebel groups in Aleppo agreed to withdraw from the besieged eastern part of the war-ravaged city on Tuesday evening, after a ceasefire agreement was reached.

The rebel gives up after the armed opposition groups suffered heavy losses under siege and bombardment by the Syrian Army forces, allied forces and the Russian Air Force.

“The battle for Aleppo has ended with a victory for the President Bashar Al Assad ” human rights activist Louay al-Halabi told ARA News.

This comes after years of fighting that claimed lives of tens of thousands in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

Local sources told ARA News that over 100,000 people were evacuated from the formerly rebel-held Eastern Aleppo. Most of them headed to the government controlled western neighborhoods of the city.

“Over the last hour we have received information that the military activities in east Aleppo have stopped, it has stopped,” Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told the UN Security Council on Tuesday evening. “The Syrian government has established control over east Aleppo.”
