DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — A military Syrian source told RIA Novosti earlier that extremists had blown up a bomb-laden car in a city street.
Earlier in the day, a Sputnik reporter said the truce had been breached in Zabadani, close to the Lebanese border.
According to Al-Mayadeen, Fuah and Kafraya also came under artillery fire by insurgents despite the agreed upon ceasefire.
Syria has been in the state of a civil war since the 2011 political collapse. Government forces have been fighting on multiple fronts against opposition forces and numerous extremist militant groups, including the Islamic State and the Nusra Front.
