The commander of forces allied to Syrian President Bashar Assad said on Sunday there was still a chance for states with influence over rebel groups to find a solution to the delay in evacuating civilians safely from east Aleppo and four besieged towns.

In a statement carried by a military news outlet run by Damascus's ally Hezbollah, the allied forces leadership said responsibility for the delay in the evacuation deal lay with "terrorists and their state sponsors".
