MOSCOW, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian army has taken complete control of over 95 percent of Aleppo's territory previously held by rebels, with over 100,000 civilians evacuated from the Syrian city, the Russian Defense Ministry said Monday.

According to the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides, the Syrian army has seized three more neighborhoods in the war-ravaged eastern Aleppo in the last 24 hours, as a result of which, the total territory held by rebel militants in the eastern part of the city is less than 10 square km.

Meanwhile, more than 100,000 civilians, including 40,484 children, have been evacuated from the city since the Syrian government's offensive began, the center said in a statement.

It added that 2,215 militants have laid down their weapons and up to 2,137 were granted amnesty.

Aleppo, once Syria's largest city and former commercial center, has been bitterly contested by the Syrian army and the rebels due to its strategic location.

Over recent months, Syrian government troops have made a major breakthrough in their latest efforts to clear the city of militants.

Britain will not “surrender” in its fight to win a bespoke deal with the European Union that would offer tariff-free trade as well as control over immigration Air Jordan Retro For Sale Online , a minister said Sunday before a crunch week for the government in Brexit negotiations.

Interior Minister Amber Rudd was one of several senior Conservative lawmakers to take to the airwaves to support Prime Minister Theresa May, under pressure from Brexit hardliners who fear she is diluting her plans for a clean break with the EU.

With reports in the local media suggesting that pro-Brexit ministers are being urged to get ready to replace May, Rudd tried to play down the deep divisions in government, saying there was more unity than so-called Brexiteers thought.

“We want to have a bespoke agreement. Now we’re not going to surrender before we have that battle Air Jordan Shoes For Sale Online ,” Rudd told the BBC when asked whether ministers were pursuing what the EU has already ruled out as “having its cake and eating it” — demanding tariff-free access to the EU’s market while controlling immigration.

She also told the Andrew Marr Show she supported May in demanding that EU citizens arriving after Brexit Day in March 2019 should have settlement rights different to those who came before that date — something the EU has opposed.

Asked whether Brexit campaigners were right to say that some in the Cabinet were trying to blunt prospects for a wholesale departure from the EU, Rudd said: “I have a surprise for the Brexiteers, which is the committee that meets in order to help make these decisions ... is more united than they think.”

Her words come at the beginning of a week when the government will flesh out some of its demands in negotiations with the EU on their future relationship and Brexit discussions start in earnest again.

The government’s Brexit sub-committee of ministers will also meet twice this week, Rudd said Air Jordan For Sale Online , adding: “I think that we will arrive at something which suits us all.”

Other Conservative lawmakers backed her message, with Junior Housing Minister Dominic Raab saying there wasn’t “a fag (cigarette) paper” between ministers on their stance on the future relationship.

But the choreographed display of unity did little to mask a growing dispute over a leaked document suggesting the economy will be worse off after Brexit whether Britain left with a free trade deal, with access to the EU’s single market, or with no deal at all.

The leak Jordan Retro For Sale Online , which bolstered arguments from some lawmakers to stay in the EU’s customs union to protect the economy, prompted allegations from Brexit campaigners that the civil service was trying to undermine Britain’s departure.

A former head of the civil service, Gus O’Donnell, said the allegations were unfounded and offered up by those who did not like what they heard.

“If you’re selling snake oil Jordan Shoes For Sale Online , you don’t like the idea of experts testing your product,” he told ITV’s Peston on Sunday.
