Russian President Vladimir Putin has unilaterally declared a 10-hour "humanitarian pause" for Aleppo on Friday, the chief of Russia's General Staff Valery Gerasimov said in a statement on Wednesday.

"A decision was made to introduce a humanitarian pause in Aleppo on November 4 from 9 am to 7 pm (3 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET)," TASS cited him as saying.

The truce has been approved by Syrian government authorities, Gerasimov said, adding that the pause is intended to "prevent senseless casualties" by allowing civilians and rebels leave the opposition-held eastern part of Aleppo.

He said a total of eight corridors - six for civilians and two for fighters - could be used to leave the city on Friday.
