The Syrian army said on Thursday it had retaken Aleppo entirely and brought “security and safety” back to the city, as the last group of rebel fighters were evacuated. The last group of rebels and their families holed up in a small enclave in Aleppo were evacuated on Thursday, under a deal that gives the army and its allies full control of the city after years of fighting, state television said.
