    The Syrian government army resumed on Thursday an active offensive against terrorists on the territory of military training facilities in Aleppo, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported.

    ALEPPO (Sputnik) — The governmental troops are trying to surround the logistics and artillery academies from the eastern and western sides. The Syrian artillery troops attacked terrorists's positions and places of hardware congestion during the night.

    Terrorists, who have captured the training facilities, are showing a strong resistance. Militants are conducting intensive mortar fire and using heavy machine guns. There are wounded servicemen among the governmental troops.

    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, which maintain a heavy presence in Aleppo, are not part of the deal.
