Newsline: Syrian Militants Shell Damascus District Hosting Russian Embassy

Armed groups shelled on Friday the district of al-Mazraa in Damascus, where the Russian embassy is located. One rocket landed in the district, exploding some 160 yards away from the embassy. The civil war in Syria has been lasting for around six years with government troops fighting against numerous opposition factions and terror organizations such as al-Nusra Front and Daesh. The nationwide Syrian ceasefire regime was introduced on December 30, 2016. Terrorist organizations are not part of the ceasefire. Moscow has been conducting a campaign in Syria since September 30, 2015, at President Bashar Assad’s request.
