Rebel Attack Injures Six Civilians In Syria’s Aleppo Amid Ongoing Military Showdown
DAMASCUS, Syria, At least six civilians were wounded on Tuesday, by renewed mortar shells fired by the rebels on residential areas in the northern city of Aleppo.
The mortar fire targeted several residential areas in Aleppo in the afternoon, causing injuries and property losses, said the report.
The wounded were rushed to the city’s hospitals to get medical treatment.
In response, the army fired on the rebels’ positions in the countryside of Aleppo, said the report.
This comes as the Syrian Army and the rebels of the Nusra Front are fighting in the countryside of Hama province in central Syria.
The army on Tuesday foiled a renewed attack by the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the umbrella group of the Nusra Front, in the northern countryside of Hama.
Adjacent areas in the countryside of Hama, the countryside of Idlib, as well as, areas in the countryside of Latakia province and Aleppo, are considered as the last rebel strongholds in Syria.
The Syrian Army said, its targeting of the rebels comes, as a result of the rebels’ breaches of the deal, supposed to see the withdrawal of the al-Qaeda-linked groups from the designated zone, which didn’t take place.
On the contrary, the HTS and like-minded groups dislodged less radical rebel groups from Idlib and took over the entire province.
