    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Islamic State (Daesh) militants and Jabhat Fatah al Sham fighters fired a number of civilian objects with multiple launch rocket systems (MRLS) and mortars in Syria's Aleppo and Damascus provinces over the past 24 hours, the Russian Defense Ministry said Friday.

    "Within last 24 hours, in the Aleppo province terrorists have fired with MLRS and mortars against the Khai-al-Ansari and "1070", areas of the the military school of armament and the "Kastello" trade centre. In the Damascus province mortar fire has been opened against inhabited areas Haush-Nasri, Ibn-Sina, Kaush-Harabu, the school of medical service in the Harasta inhabited area as well as a school in the Jaubar settlement," the ministry said in a daily bulletin posted on its website.

    Moreover, the Makharda and Kaukab inhabited areas have been shelled in the Hama province, the ministry 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 Fatah al Sham (previously known as al-Nusra Front), both outlawed in Russia and a range of other states, are not part of the deal.
