Syrian military says it has retaken control of prized city of Aleppo - The Washington Post: Syria’s government declared Thursday that it had seized full control of Aleppo after the last rebel fighters and civilians evacuated the key city as part of an agreement brokered by Russia and Turkey.

The Syrian military announced on state media that “security and stability” had been returned to Aleppo. The “terrorists” – a term used by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government to describe nearly all of its opponents – had fully exited the city, the military said.
