Aleppo: Mortar attack marks end of ceasefire

Mortar fire from regime forces ended a three-day ceasefire in Aleppo.  The Russian-backed ceasefire was initiated to allow for civilians, medical cases, and rebels could evacuate safely.  It is uncertain if any of the intended beneficiaries actually took advantage of the temporary peace.  Most people were wary of the situation and were too afraid to flee and those who did were blocked by rebel forces.
