The Russian Defence Ministry has said that it has found a man grave filled with victims who had been tortured.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Mass burial sites of many dozens [of Syrians], who had been subjected to brutal torture and [then] murdered, have been found,” he continued with “In many cases, body parts are missing; most victims had been shot in the head. And this, it seems, is only the beginning.”
The Russians also claim that the city has been mined by the militants who evacuated the city.
“Literally everything, for which there was enough time and ammunition, was mined: the streets, entrances to premises, vehicles, motorcycles lying on roads, and even children’s toys,” Konashenkov said.
Along with the mass grave large ammunition depots, enough to arm several infantry battalions, were discovered in Aleppo.
On December 22, the Syrian government forces with the help of Russian forces took full control of Aleppo as the last convoy with militants left the city.
