BEIRUT - Syrian rebel factions are proposing a five-day cease-fire to evacuate the seriously wounded out of Aleppo and to bring in aid.

The rebels' proposal comes as Syrian government and allied forces have gained control of three-quarters of the enclave that the rebels had controlled since 2012.

The proposal calls for the immediate evacuation of 500 seriously wounded Aleppo residents and for allowing civilians wishing to leave to head to northern rural Aleppo province, where there is almost no government presence.
