HMEYMIM, June 10. /TASS/. Militants from Ahrar al-Sham and Jebhat al-Nusra groups move armored vehicles and trucks to Al-Zahraa neighborhood in Aleppo, a spokesman for the Russian Center for reconciliation of warring parties in Syria told reporters on Friday.
"A concentration of large forces of terrorist groups Ahrar al-Sham and Jebhat al-Nusra is registered near the settlements of Bshantara, Kfar-Besin. Movement of armored vehicles and cargo trucks was also registered from settlements of Dar Taiz, Jabal Kabtan, Baitarun to the neighborhood of Al-Zahraa," the spokesman said.
Heavy fighting with use of armored vehicles has been underway in the Aleppo province for the last several days. The center for reconciliation noted that militants took advantage of the regime of cessation of hostilities and close proximity to regions controlled by moderate opposition, regrouped their forces and replenished their stocks of arms and ammunition.
The ceasefire regime took effect in Syria on February 27. Shortly before, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution supporting a cessation of hostilities. The document drafted by Russia and the United States was backed by all 15 Security Council member states.
The ceasefire regime does not cover the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations as well as other groups ruled terrorist by the Security Council.
