DAMASCUS, Syria, At least 17 government soldiers were killed and 30 others wounded, on Saturday, when the rebels attacked military positions in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo, a war monitor reported on Saturday.

The rebels’ attacks in the southern countryside of Aleppo started on April 20, and extended to other nearby areas in the countryside of Hama and Idlib provinces, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The UK-based watchdog group also mentioned that, the Syrian government forces are shelling on the rebel positions in Idlib.

It said, the situation is escalating in those areas, including the demilitarised zones, where a deal established last Sept, under the mediation of Turkey and Russia.

The Observatory said, the Russian air strikes targeted rebel-held areas in Idlib on Saturday, noting that the air strikes on Friday killed 15 people.
