Stephen O'Brien, head of the Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) claimed that leaflets are being dropped on eastern Aleppo by Syrian and Russian aircraft, warning residents:
“This is your last hope. Save yourselves. If you do not leave these areas urgently, you will be annihilated. You know that everyone has given up on you. They left you alone to face your doom and nobody will give you any help.”
The leaflets fell from the sky over Aleppo, offering dire warnings. “If you don’t leave these areas quickly,” they admonished civilians, “you will be annihilated. Save yourselves.… Everyone has left you alone to face your doom.…”
A similar claim is made by Charles Lister, in the following tweet.
Did Russia warn the people of besieged East Aleppo that "If you do not leave these areas urgently, you will be annihilated"?
