Residents of opposition-held East Aleppo received a dire warning from the regime via text message on Sunday morning, warning them to leave within 24 hours.

“Notice to all gunmen,” reads the message sent on MTN, one of Syria’s two mobile phone networks. “You have 24 hours to get your injured out of East Aleppo, and to leave yourselves.”

Rebels were also given an ultimatum to lay down their arms and renounce their leadership, or be killed.

The message was likely sent by the Syrian government as the regime is likely the only party capable of sending a mass text to the entire population.

Russian warplanes have since September last year backed the regime with airstrikes over rebel-held positions, pounding eastern Aleppo, where schools and hospitals have been crushed.

The text message warning is seen as a response to Syrian rebels launching an offensive last month to break the regime’s siege on eastern Aleppo.
