Over the last couple of weeks, the Syrian regime, in cooperation with Democratic Union Party (PYD ), which is the Syrian offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) terror organization, and Shiite militias have intensified their assault on the opposition-held eastern Aleppo district, causing a great humanitarian plight and bloodshed.

The Syrian army loyal to the Assad regime, Shiite militias and PYD have invaded 6 neighborhoods with Russian air support. The occupying forces are killing civilians through torture after bringing the Mesakin, Henanu, Baidin, Suleiman al-Halabi, Bustan al-Basha, Holluk and Cebel Bedru neighborhoods under their control.

Eastern districts of Aleppo have been exposed to intense air strikes. While Over 7,000 artillery shooting and roughly 2,000 missiles hit opposition's territory, chemicals like chlorine and phosphor have been utilized very often since Nov.15.

Those latest attacks have claimed the lives of over 600 civilians and wounded around 2000 others, as approximately 300,000 civilians are currently trapped in eastern Aleppo.

Following the capture, regimes forces and Shiite militias have left Turkmen-populated neighborhoods Holluk, Bustan al-Basha and Haydariya to PYD. Roughly 5,000 desperate civilians in the region moved to Sheik Maqsood, controlled by PYD, on Tuesday evening. According to the Syrian Turkmen Assembly, Turkmen districts were particularly targeted and six of them were completely destroyed.

Civilians are being tortured, massacred

Dividing the opposition-held territory and cutting off the opposition's contact with each other, regime soldiers are forcing civilians to move to the al-Nairab district. On the other hand, civilians in Turkmen districts are being gathered in the Sheik Maqsood area.

Some of those civilians were reportedly tortured to death by army and Shiite militias.

Capitulated civilians are being asked why they did not join the Syrian army, but instead continued to live in the opposition areas.

Scores of young civilians, detained by the PYD terror organization were handed to regime forces and some of them were executed.

In the Nairab area, some young civilians were seen being driven with military vehicles by Shiite militias and Assad's soldiers.

'The struggle is not over yet'

Muhanne Ceffale, the commander of the Abu Amara Brigade fighting in the center of Aleppo, and Firas Pasha, the chief of a Turkmen Brigade, told Yeni Şafak that they had to give up some districts, because they had run out of ammunition and weapons due to the siege.

Ceffale added that the struggle is not over yet and thousands of young fighters have vowed to die by fighting here, instead of surrendering.

Firas Pasha also said, ''Over the last 15 days, hundreds were martyred, but we will maintain the struggle to the last man and to the last bullet,'' adding that most civilians in Turkmen districts were evacuated to inner areas.
