The iconic Eiffel Tower went dark on Wednesday night in a solidarity show for the people of Aleppo. The famous landmark switched?off its lights at 8 pm local time which is considered as the symbolic measure to call out to the international community again on the urgency of an act.
Tens of thousands of civilians were trapped inside Aleppo City without food, water, and medical help. The civilians even pleaded for?international help as the ceasefire broke in just less than one day. Moreover, they have asked?to get enough time to evacuate eastern Aleppo and seek a safe haven for themselves.
Paris to Depart Medical Relief towards Aleppo

In addition, the Paris mayor even organized a medical humanitarian convoy fully loaded with medical equipment. The medical convoy will be chartered by the Union of Medical Relief Organization i.e. UOSSM.
