    Syrian Air Force helicopters are dropping leaflets over the opposition-held areas of the Aleppo province with calls for militants to surrender, a local source told Sputnik on Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Helicopters are dropping leaflets over in the vicinity of Hraytan, Hanano and Tell Musibin neighborhoods in Aleppo province, the source said.

    Aleppo remains one of the several areas of Syria, where fighting between government and opposition forces has continued despite the Russia-US-brokered ceasefire in place across the country.

    On Saturday, a Kurdish source told Sputnik that at least four people have been killed and 17 were wounded during shelling by al-Nusra Front terrorist group in Aleppo. On Friday, the Russian General Staff said that al-Nusra Front is hampering the ceasefire efforts in northern areas of Syria.
