Due to launching gunshots and shells on Handarat town and a number of the residential neighborhoods in Aleppo city by the terrorist groups, four citizens have been killed, including a child and a young girl, and 23 others have been injured.

In a statement to SANA reporter, a source at Aleppo Police Command said that terrorists targeted the neighborhoods of Maysalon, al-Jamilia, al-Ashrafia, al-Midan and Salah al-Dein with rockets, mortar shells and sniper bullets on Friday, claiming the lives of 3 citizens, including a young girl, and injuring 15 others, including a child.

The source added that the attacks also caused material damage to citizens’ properties.

The Russian Center for coordination and monitoring the cessation of hostilities agreement in Syria said that a child was killed, 8 people were injured and 5 houses were damaged when Jabhat al-Nusra shelled Handarat Camp and al-Sheik Maqsoud in Aleppo.

In an statement on Thursday, the Hmeimim-based center said terrorist attacks that targeted different areas in Aleppo in the past 24 hours have left at least 54 civilians dead and 93 injured.

It clarified that the casualties were caused by terrorist groups’ indiscriminate shelling of neighborhoods of al-Sheik Maqsoud, al-Midan, al-Muhafaza and al-Zahraa in Aleppo city and al-Nairab Airport and several towns in the countryside of Aleppo.

The Center noted that terrorists of Jabhat al-Nusra and “Ahrar al-Sham” targeted positions of the Syrian Arab Army in al-Sheik Maqsoud and Handarat town.

Citing the incidents where the cessation of hostilities agreement was violated in the past 24 hours, the Center said there were three breaches observed in Damascus province committed by the terrorist groups.

A 72-hour truce has been established in two towns in Idleb (Kfarhaya and al-Fouaa) and in two other towns in Damascus countryside (al-Zabadani and Madaya), the Russian center pointed out, noting that the truce will start as of Thursday midnight.

The total number of towns that joined the cessation of hostilities agreement has reached 140, according to the Center.

Russian aircrafts had carried 36 tons of humanitarian cargos to the ISIS-besieged Deir Ezzor city, while 3 trucks carrying food products and flour were sent to Deir al-Salib village in Hama province.

The cessation of hostilities agreement, in place in Syria since February 27 in implementation of the Security Council resolution 2268, does not include ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and other armed groups internationally listed as terrorist organizations; SANA reported.
