MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The attack was committed by members of the Jaish al-Islam and al-Rahman Legion groups, the Sana news agency reported.
The assailants are said to have used tunnels to attack the Syrian soldiers directly covering up an attack from another direction.
The army reportedly repelled the attack using light and medium weapons and killing eight attackers.
On September 9, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry unveiled a peace plan to address the conflict. The ceasefire deal was later shattered by numerous violations, which resulted in intensified fighting between the Syrian government and militants in Aleppo. The Syrian government has announced an end to the ceasefire regime, while Russia said that the United States failed to fulfill its obligation to separate terrorist groups from moderate opposition.
