At least 14 civilians who were among the group of hostages abducted by Iran-backed foreign fighters have been killed in Aleppo on Friday.
Pro-Assad, Iran-backed militiamen killed 14 civilians among the group of 800 Aleppo resident they took hostage earlier on Friday.
Later, the civilian group was reportedly released and returned to the besieged, opposition-held pocket in eastern Aleppo.
Assad regime officials announced earlier on Friday that the operation for the evacuation of civilians and opposition fighters from east Aleppo in Syria had been suspended.
Following the suspension, pro-regime Iran-backed militias reportedly opened fire on the evacuation convoy, and then took 800 hostages after attacking the convoy.
