Syrian rebels have lost all of the northern districts they held in eastern Aleppo, a monitor said on Monday, as the army pushed an offensive to retake the city.

The army captured the Sakhur, Haydariya and Sheikh Khodr on Monday, while Kurdish forces took the Sheikh Fares district from rebels, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Kurdish forces in Aleppo are not officially allied with the government, but the opposition regards them as co-operating with the government.

“The rebels have lost control of all the neighbourhoods in the north of east Aleppo, and this is their worst defeat since they seized half the city in 2012,” said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman.

Syrian state media reported the capture of Haydariya and Sakhur as it looped footage showing some of the thousands of civilians who have fled east Aleppo in recent days as loyalist troops have advanced.

The army renewed an operation to retake eastern Aleppo nearly two weeks ago, hoping to deal the opposition a potentially devastating blow.

Syria’s al-Watan newspaper, which is close to the government, said the army was advancing quickly.

It said the next stage of the operation would be “to divide the remaining area into security districts that will be easily controlled and to capture them successively”.

The advance would then “push the gunmen to turn themselves in… or accept national reconciliation under the terms of the Syrian state”.

The reports come after nearly 10,000 civilians fled eastern Aleppo towards government-held districts and the Kurdish-controlled area of Sheikh Maksoud, the Observatory said.

“Nearly 10,000 civilians have fled east Aleppo since the night of Saturday to Sunday,” it said. “At least 6,000 of them went to Sheikh Maksoud, the rest went to government zones of Aleppo.”

About 250,000 civilians have faced serious food and fuel shortages due to the siege on the eastern area of the city.
