A total of eight large-caliber shells were fired from an area near the border town of Bdama in the north of the Idlib Province, landing between 150 to 400 meters (490 to 1310 feet) from the journalists, Kuralenko said.

According to a source in the Syrian army, al-Nusra Front terrorist group, which is not included in the ceasefire deal as well as Daesh, has been responsible for the shelling.

The attack comes after the cessation of hostilities had come into effect at midnight on February 27. Earlier, the United States and Russia reached an agreement on a ceasefire between the Syrian government and opposition groups to help end the country’s civil war.
