UN Security Council approves monitoring of Aleppo evacuations

The United Nations Security Council has unanimously approved a resolution to deploy UN observers to the Syrian city of Aleppo.

During a Monday session at the council’s headquarters in New York, the 15-member body unanimously approved a resolution drafted by France that urged “all parties to provide these monitors with safe, immediate and unimpeded access.”

The resolution stated that UN monitors sent to Aleppo would be carrying out “adequate, neutral monitoring and direct observation” on evacuations from the eastern part of the beleaguered city as well as other neighborhoods.

Aleppo is located about 355 kilometers north of the Syrian capital, Damascus.
