The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) confirmed"all civilians who wished to be evacuated have been wounded and fighters."

This is the biggest victory for President Bashar al Assad since the uprising against him began in 2011.

UN officials said,"At least 34,000 civilians and rebel fighters have been removed from eastern Aleppo over the past week."

As part of a deal brokered by Russia and Turkey, residents of the government controlled towns of Foah and Kefraya in Idlib province, besieged by rebels, are also being removed.

ICRC spokeswoman Krista Armstrong said that everyone from each side who wanted to be evacuated had now been moved, and the process was complete.

Syrian army says,"This victory represents a strategic change and a turning point in the war against terrorism on the one hand and a crushing blows to the terrorists' project and their supporters on the other hand."

The statement said that eradicate terrorism and restore security and stability to every span on the homeland.

Yasser al-Youssef, Nureddin al-Zinki group said that return of Aleppo was a great loss.

Aleppo was once Syria's largest city and its commercial and industrial hub before the uprising against Mr Assad began in 2011.

For the past two years it was divided roughly in two, with the government controlling the western half and rebels the east.

Troops finally broke the deadlock this year with the help of Iranian backed militias and Russian air strikes, reinstating a siege on the east in early September.

After breaking through the rebels defensive lines in mid-November, they quickly advanced and had seized all but 2.6 sq km (1 sq mile) by the time a ceasefire was brokered.
