Militants from the terrorist organizations ISIL and Jabhat al-Nusra, which are banned in Russia, have been conducting artillery reconnaissance and fire adjustment near the Sheikh Maqsood and Al-Zahraa districts in Aleppo and the populated area of Handarat in Syria over the past several days, a spokesperson for the Russian center for the reconciliation of the opposing sides said.
"Residential areas, administrative buildings, and government forces' and militia's positions have been shelled intensely, which shows that the militants experience no shortage in munitions," the spokesperson said.
The Russian reconciliation center in Syria had reported in a news bulletin posted on the Defense Ministry website on June 3 that Jabhat al-Nusra militants had fired multiple rocket launchers and mortars upon Handarat, the districts of Sheikh Maqsood, and Al-Zahraa in Aleppo, and the Al Nayrab airport.
