    Al-Nusra Front terrorists attacked Syrian government forces, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Al-Nusra Front terrorist group has intensified its combat activity in the north-east of the Latakia province, the Russian Defense Ministry said Tuesday.

    "We are registering the intensification of combat activities carried out by al-Nusra Front terrorists in the north-east of the Latakia province," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    "Twice in the past 24 hours, the terrorists launched attacks on government forces positions," the bulletin said.

    Syria has been mired in a devastating civil war between the government, rebels and terrorist groups such as Daesh and al-Nusra Front since 2011.
