DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — Kinsabba was captured by the al-Nusra Front, outlawed in Russia, and allied terrorist groups on July 1.
"The operation to liberate Kinsabba is over. The army's forces and several militia groups gathered. In the beginning, there was a heavy fight, however, under the shelling of artillery and aviation, terrorists started to fall back in small groups," the source said.
A US-Russia-brokered ceasefire came into force across Syria on February 27. It does not apply to terrorist groups such as Daesh and the al-Nusra Front, both outlawed in Russia.
