"Within last 24 hours, terrorists have shelled the trade centre "Kostello", as well as al-Khalidiyah, Leramon, and al-Asad quarters as well as al-Nayrab airport in the Aleppo city with improvised MLRS [multiple launch rocket systems] and mortars. Terrorists have also shelled following inhabited areas: Duma, Arbil, Haush al-Farah, Bahariyah, Huteita al-Jarash, and Abd Beinuri in the Damascus province," the bulletin said.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting numerous opposition factions and extremist groups. On February 27, a US-Russia brokered ceasefire came into force in Syria. Terrorist groups such as Islamic State (ISIL, also known as Daesh), as well as Jabhat al-Nusra (al-Nusra Front), both outlawed in Russia and a range of other states, are not part of the deal.
