MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra* shelled the positions of the Syrian government troops in the Aleppo province, one Syrian serviceman was wounded, Rear Adm. Vadim Kulit, deputy head of the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in Syria, said at a briefing.
One Syrian soldier was also killed in artillery fire by terrorists targeting the government forces in the Idlib de-escalation zone, the military said earlier.
"One Syrian serviceman was wounded as a result of artillery shelling by terrorists of the government troops' positions in the area of the Ain Dakna locality in the Aleppo province," Rear Adm. Kulit said.
He said 23 shelling attacks by Jabhat al-Nusra were registered in the past 24 hours in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
Rear Adm. Kulit said Russian military police units conducted patrols in the Raqqa and Hasakah provinces.

The Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and Control over the Movement of Refugees in the Syrian Arab Republic was established in February 2016.

Its tasks include the signing of agreements on illegal armed groups and individual settlements joining the regime of cessation of hostilities, as well as coordinating the delivery of humanitarian aid.
