Rami Zien, who describes himself as a Syrian journalist and activist based in besieged Aleppo, shared video on December 14 showing the degree of destruction in the area around the al-Quds Hospital in southern Aleppo.

The hospital was bombed and significantly damaged in <a href="https://newswire.storyful.com/storylines/*/stories/127155" target="_blank">April 2016 airstrikes</a>, and Zien explains that he is trying to show “an example….of the scale of destruction” inside the city.

Following numerous reports of ceasefire violations inside Aleppo, carried out by both <a href="https://twitter.com/SalahAshkar/status/808980583640657920" target="_blank">regime forces</a> and <a href="https://newswire.storyful.com/storylines/*/stories/151724?referred_from=World%20News" target="_blank">rebels</a>, Ahrar al-Sham issued a statement on Telegram claiming that the ceasefire will come into full effect on Thursday, December 15, in conjunction with the first round of evacuation convoys leaving besieged Aleppo.
