    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group* committed 30 shelling attacks in Syria's Idlib de-escalation zone over the past 24 hours, the deputy head of the Russian Defense Ministry's Center for Syrian Reconciliation said at a daily briefing on Wednesday.

    According to Rear Adm. Alexander Grinkevich, the Russian military police have carried out patrols in the provinces of Aleppo, Raqqa, Hasakah and Deir Ez-Zor.

    "We have registered 30 instances of shelling in the Idlib de-escalation zone from the positions of the Nusra terrorists, including 22 in Idlib province, one in Aleppo province, three in Latakia province, and four in Hama province," Grinkevich said.
