The civilians in Syria's Aleppo, under attack from Russian and Syrian government forces, have sent a message with posters to world nations to stop the ongoing massacres in the region.

"Stop the warplanes, we will exchange bayram greetings," wrote civilians on posters aiming at halting the violence, if only briefly for the holiday marking the end of Ramazan.

A large number of people carried the posters with writing in Arabic and English.

Aleppo is one of the critical areas which has for long witnessed clashes between the moderate opposition and the Iranian- and Russian-backed Assad regime.

The region is especially significant due to its location, only 50 kilometers from Turkish territory.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed since the beginning of the five-year-long civil war in Syria.

At least 6.5 million Syrians were evacuated to the safe zone, while 5 million have been forced to emigrate.
