    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) - The Syrian forces rebuffed the shelling of the militants on the residential areas of the northern city of Aleppo, media reported on Sunday.

    The militants shelled the city's districts of New Aleppo and Al-Zahraa, while the Syrian army repelled the attack and managed to injure several militants, according to the Al Ekhbariya broadcaster.

    Militants, operating in Aleppo's neighbourhoods, have repeatedly attacked the residential quarters of once most populated Syrian cities, causing casualties and damage to infrastructure.

    Syria has been in a state of civil war since 2011, with the government forces fighting against numerous opposition groups and militant and terrorist organizations.

    Russia, along with Turkey and Iran, is a guarantor of the ceasefire regime in Syria. Moscow has also been providing humanitarian aid to residents of the crisis-torn country.
