Hundreds of Syrian families return to E. Aleppo after Russian demining operation

During the past couple days I have seen reports that scores, perhaps as many as 60, sappers and troops have lost their lives during the massive demining/bomb defusal operations in East Aleppo. The mercenaries wired everything they could, including toys and kindergartern rooms, with explosives before they decamped. That's in addition to the landmines they buried. 

And there is a massive cleanup underway in E. Aleppo neighborhoods; I think it was yesterday that I saw a photograph, maybe at FARS or Sputnik, of a tractor clearing rubble from a street in E. Aleppo. Then will come tearing down unsafe buildings, then a start on reconstruction. 

I am very much hoping that China and India, and perhaps Japan, can finance and handle projects for the most critical infrastructure repairs/rebuilding in East Aleppo.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A large number of Syrian families started returning to their homes after all terrorists were forced out of the Eastern districts of Aleppo city.
Hundreds of families from Eastern Aleppo's Seif al-Doleh are now back to their houses after the Syrian and Russian troops finished defusing mines and bombs planted by the terrorists.

The Russian Peace Coordination Center in Syria announced on Wednesday that the country's experts have cleared mines from 966 hectares of the newly-liberated neighborhoods of Eastern Aleppo city since December 5.

The Russian center said in a statement that an area as large as 966 hectares (each hectare equals 10,000 sq. m) has been cleansed from mines and bombs planted by Jeish al-Fatah coalition of terrorist groups in the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo city.

The statement added that approximately 350 km of roads, 2,149 houses, 44 schools, 38 mosques, ten hospitals and clinics, a water pumping station and two power transition stations and a water treatment plant have been demined.

The statement added that the Russian soldiers managed to defuse over 14,700 bombs including 6,700 handmade grenades.

On Thursday, the last batch of terrorists and their families left the neighborhoods of Al-Zobaydiyeh, al-Ansari and Salahuddin East of Aleppo.

The Syrian Army and its allies from the resistance front made history and took back the country's second most important city from thousands of terrorists in a landmark victory that will change the future of the war in Syria.

The last pocket of terrorists left Eastern Aleppo on Thursday evening, meaning that the Syrian army and its allies purged all city districts of Jeish Al-Fatah terrorists and completed control over the entire city.

Syria has been grappling with deadly unrests since early 2011, and only after two years, Damascus found itself under the siege of a variety of terrorist groups overtly and covertly supported by the western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey
