28 February 2016 22:13



The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed on Sunday that a newly-liberated town in the Northern part of Raqqa near the border with Turkey has been heavily shelled by the Turkish army’s artillery units.

“Russia has received information of an assault on the Northern Syrian town of Tal Abyadh from Turkish territory,” the head of the ceasefire monitoring center at the Russian Hmeymim airbase in Lattakia said Sunday.

“The Russian center for the reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria received late on February 27 information about the attack from Turkey on the Syrian city of Tal Abyadh,” Lt. Gen. Sergei Kuralenko told reporters.

Russia’s ceasefire monitoring center has asked its US counterpart in Amman, Jordan, to explain the shelling.
