    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At least six children were killed as land mine, left by terrorist in the northern countryside of Aleppo, exploded, local media said Saturday.

    The incident occurred on Friday in the village of Darb Hassan, which is located on the border between the Aleppo and Raqqah provinces in the north of the country.

    The Daesh terrorists, forced to leave settlements by the Syrian Security Forces supported by the Russia's Aerospace Forces, actively mine the left positions.
