VIDEO|The Western-backed Moderate Opposition is shelling residential areas in Syria’s Aleppo
Today (Monday, June 06, 2016) dozens of civilians killed and injured in continuous shelling of terrorist groups targetetting civilian area in northern neighborhoods of Aleppo.
Also 5 Jun, 2016 terrorist shelling of Syrian cities took the lives of over 270 civilians within the last 24 hours, Russia’s Defense Ministry said.
In the letter, which was addressed to the UN Secretary General and the Head of the UN Security Council, the Syrian ForeignMinistry complained about ongoing attacks on safe neighborhoods in Aleppo, accusing some “moderate opposition” groups of cooperating and coordinating with Al-Nusra and its affiliates in conducting them, state-run SANA news agency reports, citing the document.
The ministry also accused some regional powers, including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, of “sponsoring terrorists” and attempting to derail the peace negotiations in Geneva.
Over two thousand militants are taking part in an attack in and around Sheikh Maqsood, and rebel groups belonging to the so-called “moderate opposition” are part of the forces amassing in that area, a spokesman for the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides told TASS.
The militants are using armored vehicles and heavy machine guns in their assault.
Meanwhile, Al-Nusra terrorists backed by Ahrar al Sham fighters shelled Aleppo’s southwestern Ansar sector with mortars and artillery, an update on the center’s website says.
“Massive indiscriminate shelling of Aleppo, which has killed more than 100 civilians, including 40 children, while injuring hundreds more, is just “part of a series of systematic terrorist acts plotted and prepared by the Turkish regime and perpetrated by the ‘moderate opposition’ groups in cooperation and coordination with Jabhat al-Nusra and its affiliates such as Jaish al-Islam, Ahrar al-Sham, and Jaish al-Fatah, among others,” the Syrian ministry’s letter reads.“
The document also stresses that these attacks are part of “blatant attempts by the regime of Erdogan and the other regimes supporting and sponsoring terrorism in Riyadh and Doha to undermine the efforts seeking to stop the bloodshed and to foil the Geneva talks and the truce arrangements.”
