    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - One child was killed and another eight children were wounded as a result of shelling of Syria's Aleppo by militants, head of Russia's center for Syrian reconciliation Lt. Gen. Vladimir Savchenko said at a briefing Friday.

    "As a result of shelling of the outskirts of the city of Aleppo from a 82-mm mortar, 14 civilians were affected: an 11-year-old child died, 13 people, including eight children, were wounded," Savchenko said.

    The Russian side of the Russian-Turkish commission monitoring the implementation of the Syrian ceasefire registered 29 truce breaches in the last 24 hours, while Turkey recorded seven violations, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday.
