GENEVA- A cessation of hostilities across Syria is vital to avoid another deadly battle like the one in Aleppo, the United Nations Special Envoy Staffan de Mistura said on Thursday.

At least 35,000 people, both civilians and fighters, have been evacuated from east Aleppo in a week-long operation, the latest UN figures show. "Many of them have gone to Idlib, which could be the next Aleppo," de Mistura warned.
