American freelance journalist Bilal Abdul Karim, who <a href="http://www.middleeasteye.net/fr/news/fall-aleppo-trapped-us-journalist-feared-execution-if-captured-1916360416" target="_blank">maintains close ties to rebels inside besieged Aleppo</a>, reported that he made it out of the city on December 22 alongside at least <a href="https://twitter.com/Step_Agency/status/811958912790462464" target="_blank">700 cars</a> carrying Syrian rebels out of the city.

The Free Syrian Army issued a press release on December 22, which was in turn distributed via Telegram channels affiliated with Jaish al-Fateh rebel coalition members inside Aleppo, saying all rebels inside the city had been evacuated to the western Aleppo countryside. This corroborates with <a href="https://youtu.be/OFGPnGE8Mw8" target="_blank">regime media reports</a> suggesting that the last rebels had been evacuated out of the city on the same day.
