"During the day, shelling attacks were reported at the settlement of Qudehi in the Aleppo governorate and Aleppo’s western suburbs. One Syrian serviceman was killed in Qudehi," he said.

According to Savchenko, officers of the Russian reconciliation center had a meeting with local government officials and representatives from the reconciliation committee in the Deir ez-Zor governorate. "The meeting focused on problems of restoration of social infrastructure facilities," he noted.

Apart from that, officers of the Russian center conducted two humanitarian operations and delivered about 900 sets of food products to the Rif Dimashq and Homs governorates.
