Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on "all parties and the international community to abide by" the Turkey-brokered truce in Aleppo.

On his official Twitter account, Erdogan wrote Friday:

"The Turkey-brokered truce in Aleppo and the continuation of evacuations is the only hope left for innocent people.

I urge all parties and the international community to abide by the truce agreement and support the implementation of the evacuation process.

The people of Aleppo are not alone. We will do everything in our power to save innocent lives."

His message came in Turkish, English, and Arabic.

Under a ceasefire agreement secured Tuesday by Turkey and Russia, civilians trapped in eastern Aleppo will be allowed to go to the opposition-held city of Idlib.

At least 7,500 civilians have so far left eastern Aleppo in convoys for safe areas in Idlib, according to Syrian opposition group officials. However, reports also arrived that the regime and pro-regime terrorists violated the truce.
