MOSCOW, June 21. /TASS/. Groups constituting the international terrorist organization Jabhat al-Nusra continue attempts to break down the regime of cessation of hostilities, the Russian center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria said in its regular daily news bulletin posted on the Russian Defense Ministry’s website on Tuesday.

Thus, during the day, "terrorists conducted fire from multiple missile launcher systems and mortars at the settlement of Handrat in the province of Aleppo, the al-Nayrab airport and Aleppo’s districts of Sheikh Maksoud and al-Khalidiya," the center said.

Apart from that, terrorists shelled the settlement of Fua in the province of Idlib, the settlement of al-Wara in the province of Latakia, the settlements of Haush Harabu, Bleliye, Marj-Sultan and positions of the Syrian government army near the village of Mazaraat Kokab in the province of Damascus, as follows from the bulletin.

A ceasefire regime brokered by Russia and the United States on February 22 officially came into effect in Syria at midnight Damascus time on February 27. This does not cover terrorist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra, both outlawed in Russia, and other groups recognized as terrorist by the United Nations Security Council.

An hour before the ceasefire came into force, the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution in support cessation of hostilities in Syria. The document was initiated by Russia and the United States and won support from all the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council.
