Paris Boosts Security at Russian Embassy Over Syrian Opposition's Rally

The French authorities tightened security at the Russian embassy in Paris due to possible rallies of representatives of the Syrian opposition over intensified fighting in Aleppo, the embassy's spokeswoman said on Friday.

PARIS (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that a number of opposition groups urged to hold rallies after Friday prayers across the globe to protest against reinvigorated hostilities in Aleppo.

"The embassy was informed on a possible protest of Syrian opposition representatives that disagree with Russia's policies. In this regard the French side decided to boost police presence to strengthen security," Anna Shlychkova told RIA Novosti.

The Syrian nationwide ceasefire deal forged by the United States and Russia, which came into force on September 12, was shattered by numerous violations, triggering escalation of hostilities between the Syrian army and militants in the city of Aleppo.
