Evacuations from rebel-held neighborhoods in east Aleppo stalled on Wednesday, December 21, as cold weather brought snow to the area. The delays came a day after advancing government forces <a href="http://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-idUSKBN1491H7" target="_blank">warned civilians</a> to speed up the process to leave.

Media activists in and around Aleppo shared footage of the snowy conditions, both in the city and at al-Rashideen, the drop-off point just inside the rebel-controlled countryside to the west.

Ahmad Primo, who has been covering <a href="https://newswire.storyful.com/storylines/*/stories/152026" target="_blank">evacuations from the city</a>, captured this footage, showing snowfall and parked convoy vehicles at al-Rashideen.
