MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. Paramilitary units reporting to Jabhat al-Nusra international terrorist organization continue hostilities aimed at disrupting the 'regime of tranquility' in Syria and drawing in ever more new combatants, the Center for Syrian Reconciliation said in a communique published at the official website of the Russian Defense Ministry.
In addition to new militants, Al-Nusra is also getting munitions for chemical warfare, the report said.
"The information the center received from local residents suggests more than a hundred Jabhat Al-Nusra terrorists arrived in the township of Kafr Hamra from the Turkish territory," the center said. "Besides, several trucks loaded with improvised explosive devices, which are stuffed with chlorine-based poisonous chemicals, arrived in an area controlled by Al-Nousra north off Aleppo from Idlib governorate."
Since Tuesday afternoon, fire from multiple-launch systems was opened on three occasions at the Sheikh Maqsood district of Aleppo from Al-Ashrafiya.
"A total of six peaceful civilians including a child were wounded," the center said. "During the day, fire from mortars and artillery guns was opened five times at the village of Handarat from the locality of Muhaim Handarat and Hraytan.".
