Iran, Russia Share Aleppo Victory Iran, Russia Share Aleppo Victory

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Thursday the regaining of full control of the northern city of Aleppo was a victory for his Russian and Iranian allies as much as his own country. In comments after meeting a senior Iranian delegation, Assad also said the battlefield successes were a "basic step on the road to ending terrorism in the whole of Syrian territory and creating the right circumstances for a solution to end the war", Reuters reported.Russia's air force conducted raids on militant-held parts of Aleppo while Lebanese Hezbollah militia poured thousands of fighters to fight militants along the city's main frontlines. The last group of civilians and militants holed up in a small enclave was expected to leave by Friday, with the army and its allies seizing the entire city.
