People in eastern Aleppo packed their bags and burned personal belongings, fearing looting by the Syrian regime army and its Iranian-backed militia allies.

Turkey brokered a deal with Russia late Tuesday to evacuate civilians and rebels from eastern Aleppo. However, the ceasefire came under pressure early on Wednesday as fighting erupted in those parts of Aleppo still with an opposition presence.
