The Syrian government forces are pressing deep into eastern Aleppo and are now in control of 93 percent of the city, a Russian Defense Military official said on Friday in Moscow.

Lt. Gen. Sergey Rudskoi, the chief of the Main Operations Directorate at Russia's General Staff, made the remarks at a news briefing about the development of the military operation in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.

Over the past four days, territory controlled by militants decreased by one third, Rudskoi said, stressing that the Russian warplanes have not carried out any airstrike over Aleppo since Oct. 18.
