    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Jabhat Fatah al Sham (formerly al-Nusra Front) terrorist group executed 40 insurgents and their family members in their attempt to surrender and gain safe passage through one of several humanitarian corridors in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

    "In the Karyat al-Ansari quarter of Eastern Aleppo, Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists have executed two insurgents and members of their families, who had tried to lay down their weapons and leave the city through the humanitarian convoys to regions controlled by the government troops. In total, terrorists have executed 40 people,"  the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    The Russia-US brokered ceasefire regime in Syria came into force on February 27. The Jabhat Fatah Al Sham and the Islamic State terrorist groups, which have been outlawed in Russia, are not part of the ceasefire deal.

    Russia formed seven round-the-clock humanitarian corridors across Aleppo this month to allow safe passage for civilians and militants wishing to lay down arms.
