ALEPPO, Syria (AA) - The 20th convoy carrying civilians and opposition fighters from the city of Douma in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta arrived in Aleppo's Al-Bab district late Friday, according to Anadolu Agency correspondents on the ground.
The convoy carried 3532 people, including 1413 children and 903 women, who will be brought to the Azaz district from Al-Bab where they will be provided with temporary accommodation in camps.
With the latest convoy, the number of people to have left Eastern Ghouta since the evacuation process began on March 22 has surpassed 60,000.
Meanwhile, a Syrian child was killed and four people injured when Syrian regime forces reportedly shelled the 21st convoy as it moved to Al-Bab.
The attack took place on in Aseer al-Hanasir road in the regime-controlled Hama, according to Anadolu Agency's reporters.
The 21 convoy is set to arrive in Al-Bab during the upcoming hours.
Turkey's Operation Euphrates Shield, launched in late 2016, liberated Al-Bab from the Daesh terrorist group.
Evacuations are being conducted as part of a Russian-brokered agreement between Syria's Assad regime and armed opposition groups.
On Feb. 24, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2401, which called for a cease-fire in Syria -- especially in Eastern Ghouta -- to allow the delivery of humanitarian aid.
Despite the resolution, however, the regime and its allies in early March launched a major ground offensive -- backed by Russia -- aimed at recapturing opposition-held parts of the district.
Since Feb. 19, more than 1,400 people have been killed in attacks by the regime and its allies in Eastern Ghouta, according to local civil-defense sources.
Home to 400,000 residents, Eastern Ghouta has remained under a crippling regime siege for the last five years, which has prevented the delivery of badly needed humanitarian supplies.
Syria has only just begun to emerge from a devastating conflict that began in early 2011 when the regime cracked down on demonstrators with unexpected ferocity.
According to UN officials, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed in the conflict and millions displaced.
