The Russian military have asked President Vladimir Putin, who is the supreme commander of the armed forces, to permit the resumption of airstrikes against militants in eastern Aleppo, Gen Sergei Rudskoi, the chief of the main department for operations at the General Staff of the Armed Forces said on Oct. 28.
"Since civilians continue dying and the militants have resumed active combat actions against government forces, we've asked the Supreme Commander to authorize resumption of airstrikes on illegal paramilitary formations in eastern Aleppo," he said.
Rudskoi noted that Russian fighter planes in Syria have steered clear of the 10-kilometer zone around Aleppo for a 10th successive day.
"All flights by Russian and Syrian warplanes inside the 10-kilometer zone around the city have remained paused for a 10 day running, although the situation around Aleppo remains complicated," he said.
