    Al-Nusra front-affiliated factions keep trying to derail the Syrian ceasefire, the Russian announced.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Militant groups affiliated with the Nusra Front group continue their attempts to derail the Syrian cessation of hostilities, the Russian reconciliation center said Thursday.

    "Groups of the Nusra Front terrorist organization are not abandoning their attempts to derail the cessation of hostilities. In the past 24 hours, [they] shelled, using makeshift artillery and mortar shells, districts of Aleppo," the center said as quoted by the Russian defense Ministry.

    The Nusra Front militant group is banned in Russia.
