MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Nusra Front terrorist group shelled the Syrian settlement of Handrat and Aleppo's district of Sheikh Maqsood as well as tried to seize control of Ayn Daqnah and Mennah towns, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement Sunday.

"Militants of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist group [banned in Russia] were shelling the settlements of Handrat and Sheikh Maqsood district in the city of Aleppo. In addition, to establish control over the road connecting the cities of Aleppo and Azaz, the terrorists of Jabhat al-Nusra attempted to capture the settlements of Ayn Daqnah and Mennah but after suffering losses in the course of the battle, retreated to their original positions," the statement said.
