Syrian ceasefire is due to start on Monday evening, at start of Eid, but besieged residents of eastern Aleppo are sceptical
For Mojahed Abo Aljood, the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha was always marked by the crowds in the markets of Aleppo, the aroma of familiar home-cooked meals, the pastries and morning prayers, the children playing in amusement parks.
Now that is all gone. Eid for the past few years in the opposition-held districts of eastern Aleppo is marked by massacres or more intense bombardment by the government’s air force, by deprivation instead of abundance.
