Russian Center for Syrian reconciliation said on Thursday that reports show ISIS terrorists are training children and women to carry out suicide attacks in the Syrian flashpoint city of Aleppo.‌

"We received reports indicating that the terrorists are training children and women to carry out suicide attacks," said the commander of the Russian Center for Syrian reconciliation, Lt. Gen. Sergei Chvarkov, Sputnik reported.

According to Chvarkov, "the terrorists are attempting to prevent local residents from leaving the Eastern part of Aleppo, threatening people with public executions."

The Russian general also said some 372 civilians including 76 children have left militant-controlled parts of Syria's Aleppo through humanitarian corridors established by Moscow and Damascus.

"At this point, 372 civilians, including 76 children, have left areas in Aleppo controlled by illegal armed groups while 94 militants have surrendered," Chvarkov said.

At the weekend, Moscow and Damascus commenced a large-scale humanitarian operation in Aleppo, partially controlled by Fatah al Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front), opening escape routes for civilians and for militants wishing to lay down arms.

Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous terrorist groups, FNA reported.
