Syrian soldier wounded in Syria’s Aleppo – Russian Reconciliation Center

IDLIB, Syria (North Press) – One Syrian soldier was wounded in an attack lunched by militants in Idlib countryside, northwest Syria, the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria announced on Saturday.

“Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS, formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) shelled the de-escalation zone in Idlib during the past 24 hours,” Oleg Zhuravlev, deputy chief of the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria, announced.

“One Syrian soldier was wounded as a result of the artillery shelling carried out by terrorists from al-Fatir area on government forces’ positions in the Khazari area,” Zhuravlev added.

Early this month, the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria announced that three Syrian soldiers were wounded in different attacks lunched by militants in Aleppo and Latakia.

Although the de-escalation zone in northwest Syria is subject to a Russian-Turkish ceasefire agreement signed in March 2020, the area witnesses frequent bombardment despite the entry of the ceasefire into force.
