"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Syrian combatants yet to withdraw from Aleppo road- Al-Arabiya

Syrian government forces and rebels had yet to withdraw from a road to be used to deliver aid to Aleppo on Thursday morning, a war monitor and a senior rebel official said, a step that must happen for the delivery to take place under a US-Russian deal.
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Director Rami Abdulrahman said each side wanted the withdrawal from the Castello Road to happen simultaneously. The Britain-based Observatory follows the war using a network of contacts in Syria.
Russia said on Wednesday it was preparing for the Syrian army and rebel fighters to begin a staged withdrawal from the road.
“The regime is ready ... to withdraw but will not move unless the opposition begins to withdraw,” Abdulrahman said.
